A two dimensional model of a tabular reactor with the catalytically active wall has been proposed in which several exothermic catalytic reactions take place. The derived dimensionless equations enable evaluation of concentration and temperature profiles on the surface of the active component. The resulting nonlinear parabolic equations have been solved by the method of orthogonal collocations.
