Three methods of modeling a chemical reaction in the combustion of ethanol injected into the boundary layer through a porous plate are compared. In calculations of the average velocity and temperature and also heat-transfer coefficients, simple models of combustion are shown to be close in accuracy to a model that takes into complete account the kinetics of all reactions occurring during combustion. Simple models fail to determine the composition of reaction products, and it is necessary to take into account the formation rate of each substance entrained in combustion.
