J. Heat Transfer 139(7), 074502 (Mar 21, 2017) (5 pages) Paper No: HT-16-1516; doi: 10.1115/1.4036005 History: Received August 17, 2016; Revised February 09, 2017

This paper presents research for a class of recombination reaction and diffusion problems in which the Cattaneo relaxation, n-diffusion flux, and p-Fisher–Kolmogorov–Petrovsky–Piscounov (KPP) reaction are considered. Approximate analytical solutions are obtained by Adomian decomposition method (ADM) and shown graphically. Some interesting results for spatial variable and temporal variable evolution are obtained. For specified spatial variable, the temperature profiles decrease with respect to the increase of relaxation parameter and power-law index n but decrease with respect to Fisher–KPP reaction parameter p. For specified temporal variable, the temperature profiles are seem oscillating with values of the relaxation parameter and power-law index n.
