Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Experimental studies were performed for crude oil-based fuel samples. The initial temperature of the samples varied down to 120 K. Ignition was performed by single metal particles of various shapes and temperatures, which reached 1350 K. A specially developed experimental setup allowed recording of the proceeding processes at a high speed. As a result, the characteristics of physical and chemical processes were analysed. Conditions necessary for stable ignition and ignition delay times were determined depending on various conditions.
