This paper is on reaction kinetics models for approximating diffuse propagation reaction fronts in one-dimensional gasless combustion type models. This study is carried out in the context of free-radical frontal polymerization (FP) via a propagating, self sustaining reacting front in the absence of material diffusion. The model which is a system of partial differential equations is linearized into a system of ordinary differential equations and solved numerically. Results are obtained for different values of E .
