We study the classification and evolution of bifurcation curves for the porous-medium combustion problem
$ \begin{equation*} \begin{cases} u^{\prime \prime }(x)+\lambda \dfrac{1+au}{1+e^{d(1-u)}} = 0, \ -1<x<1, \\ u(-1) = u(1) = 0, \end{cases} \end{equation*} $
where
$ u $
is the solid temperature, parameters
$ \lambda >0 $
,
$ a\geq 0 $
, and the activation energy parameter
$ d>0 $
is large. We mainly prove that, on the
$ (\lambda , ||u||_{\infty }) $
-plane, the bifurcation curve is S-shaped with exactly two turning points for any
$ \ (d, a)\in \Omega \equiv \left \{ (d, a):(0<d<d_{1}, \text{ }a\geq A_{1}(d))\text{ or }(d\geq d_{1}, \text{ }a\geq 0)\right \} $
for some positive number
$ d_{1}\approx 2.225 $
and a nonnegative, strictly decreasing function
$ A_{1}(d) $
defined on
$ (0, d_{1}]. $
Furthermore, for any
$ \ (d, a)\in \Omega , $
we give a classification and evolution of totally four different S-shaped bifurcation curves. In addition, for any
$ d>0 $
and
$ a\geq \tilde{a}\approx 1.704 $
for some positive
$ \tilde{a}, $
then the bifurcation curve
$ S $
is type 4 S-shaped on the
$ (\lambda , \left \Vert u\right \Vert _{\infty }) $
-plane.
