Abstract : Working formulas are derived on the basis of the theory of spontaneous ignition for calculating warm-up time and temperature and ignition time. These formulas are then applied to two specific cases: heat ignition of translucent fuel by radiant energy and heat ignition of fuel in a gas flow. For the latter case, it is shown that the formulas give a good approximation of the ignition time over the entire range of Nusselt numbers. The case of burnout of fuel during ignition is not considered. (Author)
