This paper is on the numerical study of reaction kinetics model for approximating diffuse propagation reaction fronts in one-dimensional gasless combustion type models. The study is carried in the context of free-radical frontal polymerization (FP) via a propagating, self sustaining reacting front in the presence of material diffusion. The model which is a system of partial differential equations is analyzed numerically using the finite difference scheme to obtain results for1, 2, 3, 4, 10, 100, 1000 (where p is the order of reaction).
