A stationary model of filtration combustion of a gas with allowance for conditions at the entrance to the porous body and conditions of heat exchange with the gas phase surrounding the burner and with the heat exchanger is proposed and numerically analyzed. Ranges of parameters where the regime of gas combustion with a narrow reaction zone near the outer surface of the porous body are determined. Mechanical stresses arising in the porous body owing to high temperature gradients and gas pressure in the pores are estimated. The rate of gas combustion and the radiative heat flux from the burner surface are plotted as functions of process-dependent parameters.
