The results of a numerical solution to the problem of heat and mass transfer at the ignition of a liquid flammable substance by a single particle heated to a high temperature located on its surface are presented. The problem is solved within the framework of a gas phase model of ignition. A mathematical model is formulated. It describes the following processes in a two-dimensional statement: The heat conduction and evaporation of a flammable liquid and the diffusion and convection of the combustible vapors in the oxidizer medium in the system "particle heated to a high temperature - liquid flammable substance - air." The numerical investigations established the relation between the ignition delay time, the particle temperature and sizes, and the particle minimum temperature and sizes at which ignition of a combustible liquid is possible.
