A two-dimensional gas-phase model of ignition of a flammable liquid by a single particle heated to a high temperature with consideration given to heat conduction, evaporation, diffusion, and convection of fuel vapor in an oxidizer medium was developed. Numerical simulations made it possible to determine the dependences of the ignition delay time for the liquid on the size and initial temperature of the particle. The minimum size and initial temperature of the particle at which ignition still occurs were estimated.
