Using the theory of thermo- and mass-elasticity the equations for the description of stationary front of chemical interaction in a deformable medium are evaluated. Formulae for the calculation of stationary velocity are written for zero order reaction. It is shown that the increase of front velocity may be achieved due to the activation of chemical reaction by the deformation forces work. Estimated values of characteristic front and combustion temperatures are given.
