Abstract



We investigate the effect of Frank-Kamenetskii parameter d on the thermal explosion in a flammable gas with fuel droplets. It is shown that the induction period decreases as d increases. The droplets increase the volume of the gas as they evaporate. The combustion medium is quasi-steady after explosion and the medium could no longer be regarded as homogeneous.
