A model for the flame behavior of a ceramic foam surface gas burner is developed. The burner plate is divided into small segments. Each segment is assumed to behave independently and the transport phenomena in each segment are assumed to be one-dimensional. Relations between the local gas velocity and global pressure drop are derived. The model predicts the pressure drop over the hot burner plate and the radiating fraction of the plate reasonably well.
