Present work is a numerical analysis of fuel oil combustion inside an inert porous medium where fuel oil flows through the porous medium under gravity wetting its solid wall with concurrent movement of liquid fuel and air under steady state conditions. A one-dimensional heat transfer model has been developed under steady state conditions using a single step global reaction mechanism. The effects of optical thickness, emissivity of medium, flame position and reaction enthalpy flux on radiation energy output efficiency as well as the temperature, position and thickness of vaporization zone have been presented using kerosene as fuel. Low values of optical thickness and emissivity of porous medium will ensure efficient combustion, maximize downstream radiative output with minimum upstream radiative loss
