Combustion synthesis of ceramic and intermetallic powders is reaching the stage of industrial application. In the design of reactors for strongly exothermic processes of the type solid-solid, the understanding of the chemical engineering principles of scale-up is lacking. The overall view of mathematical modeling and scale-up procedures for SHS reactors is discussed.
