This paper presents a mathematical combustion model of the kerosene aerosol and the calculation results of the combustion front normal velocity. The model is based on the dynamic equations of the two-phase reacting medium and consists of the energy equations for the gas and kerosene droplets, taking into account heat exchange, evaporation and heat release from the kerosene-oxygen reaction in the air; mass conservation equations for the gas, droplets, oxygen and kerosene, controlling the mass exchange between the phases and the burning of the reagents; the motion equation of the droplets; the particle number equations for the of droplets per unit volume; the ideal gas equation. The model assumes the isobaric conditions of the aerosol combustion. The obtained (calculated) propagation velocity of the kerosene aerosol combustion front, depending on the kerosene mass concentration and the initial temperature of the mixture, is in good agreement with the experimental data.
