Abstract

Self-heating/ignition isoneofthewell-knownpracticalcausesfor fires andexplosionsinindustryandin nature. TheTransientMethod(or Chen Method) isacost-effectiveapproachfordeterminingthethermal ignition parametersofpackedparticulateorloosematerials(activationenergyE,theproductoftheheat of reactionandthepre-exponentialconstantQA).Thecrossing-point-temperature(CPT)methodto establish theignitionkineticswasinitiatedbythe first authorin1994.
