Summary: Flow of a fluid through a porous medium is considered with allowance for heat conduction. Both fronts at which the liquid is transformed into steam or a liquid-steam mixture and fronts with inverse transformations are studied. The evolutionarity conditions of these fronts are considered and a model of their structure is proposed.
