New analytical formulas were derived for calculation of combustion front velocity and temperature and concentration profiles during self-propagating high-temperature synthesis under nonadiabatic conditions for any reaction order. Results obtained from mathematical analysis are compared with experimental observations of molybdenum disilicide synthesis from elemental powders. Three configurations and specimen diameters were used to vary a dimensionless overall heat transfer coefficient. Radial and axial temperature profiles are presented as well.
