Ignition of Forest Combustible Materials by a Group of Crystallizing Metal Particles

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The physical mechanism of igniting a layer of forest combustible materials by a group of crystallizing metal particles of fairly small sizes (smaller than 3–4 mm) was determined. Results of a statistical treatment of data on the induction period between the first and second microflame in such a layer and on the instants of time these hotbeds of fire begin to grow are presented. It is shown that the indicated ignition process is probabilistic in character, and recommendations are given for the development of its mathematical model.
