The processes of heat and mass transfer accompanied by phase changes and chemical reactions are numerically modeled for the ignition of a liquid droplet formed from a condensed substance hitting the surface of a high-temperature metallic plate (substrate). The time delay of a droplet ignition is determined as well as the influence scope of a substrate, droplet, and oxidizer temperature, together with sizes and speed of droplet spreading on the ignition response. Conditions are revealed when spreading and deformation of a liquid droplet dominate during the ignition process.
