The present study considers the heat interaction between a combustible mixture and a constant-temperature surface near the stagnation region of a blunt body. The steady-state governing equations have been solved numerically for the case of Le = 1. A second-order Arrhenius law is assumed to describe the chemical kinetics of the mixture. The first Damko¨hler similarity parameter is shown to critically influence the surface heat transfer. The parameter represents a measure of the convective time to the chemical time.
