In this paper, we study a solution of a set of convective-diffusion equations arising from methane combustion in reverse flow reactor. Here, temperature and concentration of methane are dependent variables. By scaling process, a nonlinear reaction rate term can be approximated as a linear term, resulting in linear convective-diffusion equations. We consider the steady state regime for small ratio of the diffusion and convective terms. This leads to a singular perturbation problem. Using variable transformation, the problem can be converted into a regular perturbation-like problem. Asymptotic solution shows that, up to and including the second order of approximation, the solution is in agreement with numerical solutions of the boundary value problem.
