Analyzing the characteristic times of physical-chemical processes running at ignition of a liquid condensed substance under local heating

Abstract

The ranges of times of heat and mass transfer processes, phase transitions, formation of a reactive vapor-gas mixture, and abruptly exponential acceleration of oxidation at ignition of a liquid condensed substance by a typical source with a limited heat content, that is, by a small hot metal particle, are found. Results of the performed numerical and experimental investigations are used to find the limiting values of the main parameters (temperature, sizes) of a local energy source, which are sufficient for ignition of a typical liquid fuel.
