Fixed-bed Solid Fuel Arrhenius Combustion: Modelling and Simulation by R.O. Olayiwola Volume 21 (July, 2012), pp 111 – 120
Sale price: $5.00


In this paper, we study coupled heat transport in Arrheniusly reactive porous medium using a homogeneous description at the Darcy-scale. We assume that there is a perfect contact between gas and solid phases. By method of upper and lower solution, we prove the existence of solution of the model. We show that temperature is non-decreasing function of time. We obtain the time-dependent temperature profiles through analytical method.

Keywords: Arrhenius combustion, pyrolysis, fixed-bed,  solid fuel, Darcy-scale.
