An analytical method is used to solve the problem of homogeneous combustion in a monolith.The solid phase acts as burner support. Heat is conducted much more effectively in the solid phase and preheating of the gas is more effective. The flame temperature exceeds the adiabatic value. Solutions are presented for different velocities and feed concentrations
