Abstract

An analysis is carried out of the steady spread of a flame with infinitely fast kinetics over a thermally thin solid rod in the absence of gravity. Due to the radial convergence on the solid surface of the heat flux heating and vaporizing the fuel, the spread rate is found to be higher than for a flame spreading over a slab, and the region of the gas around the flame which is affected by molecular transport is large compared with the radius of the rod. The effects of radiation, of a buoyancy force opposing flame propagation and of axial heat conduction in the solid are discussed briefly
