The ignition of a typical liquid fuel with a limited-energy source, a small metal particle heated to high temperature is numerically simulated with consideration given to the possible turbulization of the fuel vapor flow. The dependences of the integral ignition characteristics on the key parameters of the local heat source are established. The integral ignition characteristics, as well as the fields of fuel vapor concentrations and velocities predicted by models accounting for the laminar and turbulent modes of the vapor-oxidizer mixture flow are compared.
