We carried out a numerical and experimental investigation of heat and mass transfer at the ignition condition of a liquid high-energy material by a typical immersed source with a limited energy capacity, being a small, intensely heated metallic particle. The numerical research is made on the basis of a model taking into account a group of interrelated physicochemical processes (thermal conductivity, diffusion, convection, mixing, and radiative heat transfer) with phase transitions (evaporation of the liquid and crystallization of the particle's material). We established such terminal conditions for the immersion energy source that prevent inflammation of the high-energy material.
