A numerical simulation of solid-phase ignition of a composite propellant by a single small disk-shaped metal particle heated to a high temperature is performed. In the “heat flux amplitude-ignition delay ” coordinates, an region of stable initiation of combustion of a typical composite solid propellant under local heating by a source of limited energy capacity is selected. The limiting amplitudes of heat fluxes during ignition of the condensed substance under conductive and radiative heating are compared.
