The modeling of combustion fronts in porous media is an extremely complex problem which finds applications in many branches of science and engineering. In the petroleum industry the successful application of an oil recovery process by air injection essentially depends on the sustained propagation of a combustion front in the reservoir. In particular, we are interested in understanding the flow and transport mechanisms which govern the dynamics of combustion fronts during an in-situ combustion process.
