A model to describe experimental results on phase transitions in vanadium oxides was suggested recently by Marks, Volpert and Ai (1992). This work is devoted to a more detailed analysis of the model. An analytical approach to the problem based on a quasistationary approximation is used to find the distribution of the concentration and the interface velocity. A multiplicity of modes of the interface propagation is shown to be possible depending on the kinetics of the phase transformation. The stability of the interface to small perturbations is studied. Two-interface propagation is also considered.
