Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The results of experimental studies of various geometric shape wood biomass single particles ignition processes (on the example of a cylinder and a cube) are presented. According to the results of the experiments, it has been stated that the shape of the fuel particle can influence the characteristics and conditions of ignition, but it is insignificant. It has been demonstrated, that in most cases cylindrical particles ignite faster than cubic particles. However, in this respect, two ignition modes are set: high temperature (the cube fires up faster) and low temperature (the cylinder ignites faster).
