In this article, a new mathematical model is presented that encompasses flame propagation through a two-phase mixture of uniformly distributed organic fuel particles and air. In this analytical study, which is conducted in the framework of a thermal-diffusive model assuming the Lewis number to be varying, and taking into account thermal radiation effect induced from flame front into unburned zone, the flame structure is divided into four integral zones. The system of governing equations is rewritten in the perturbed form with a perturbed flame front, and the time-related solutions are analyzed by using the method of small harmonic perturbations. The main goal of this study is to ascertain to..
