A situation is frequently encountered in practice, where the condensed material being ignited is not in direct contact with the heater. Specifically, the heating effect may be shielded by the walls of the fuel-filled container or by special flame-obstructing plates. The thermal contact may also be imperfect in laboratory investigations of the condensed material combustibility, when the gap between the heater and the reagents is due to the surface roughness or to the gases being released during the heat-up. Within this context, a need arises for a capability to estimate the effect of the characteristics of the shield between the heater and the reactive material on the induction period duration. From the possible heater types, the authors have selected for consideration the constant temperature glowing plate.
