Published online: 20 January 2015
Experimental research results of ignition processes of typical and widespread forest fuel (pine needles) by single heated up to high temperatures metal particles of the cylindrical form are presented. Ignition delays for particles of the various sizes and initial temperatures are resulted. Ignition conditions are established and a number of features of the investigated process mechanism are marked.
