%X This paper presents the structure of laminar, one-dimensional, and steady-state flame propagation in a uniform cloud of volatile organic particles. In this model, it is assumed that particles vaporize to yield a gaseous fuel. In order to study the effects of thermal conductivity and thermal diffusion on combustion of organic particles, an asymptotic analysis, based on the large Zeldovich number or high rate of reaction, is used. In the preheat zone, the rate of chemical reaction is small, and transfer phenomena play a significant role in temperature and mass distributions. Therefore, according to the kinetic theory of gases, thermal (conductivity (λ) and diffusion coefficient (*D*) are considered to be proportional to *T* ^{1/2} and *T* ^{3/2}, respectively. Finally, flame characteristics for different equivalence ratios of solid mixture for different Lewis numbers are reported. Results show that both flame temperature and burning velocity increase with rise in the Lewis number.
