Abstract

Peculiarities of natural convection in a liquid condensed substance at ignition by a typical local energy source, that is, a small hot metal particle, are numerically investigated. The proposed model takes into account the whole complex of the main processes of heat and mass transfer with phase transitions, chemical reaction, and hydrodynamic processes during interaction between a liquid substance and a source with a limited energy capacity. The influence of convective streams in liquid during the ignition delay time on the process characteristics is analyzed.
