Figure 7 shows the test results of the reductivity and [RDI.sub.>3.15] of the finished sintered ore at different ignition temperatures. No evident changes are found in the reduction of the sintered ore with the increase in ignition temperature, but [RDI.sub.>3.15] increases first and then decreases.
(1) There are no obvious effects of Al powder ([less than or equal to] 30 wt.%) on the ignition temperature of RDX, HMX, and CL-20.
The relationship between the auto ignition temperature of the liquid oil particles entered in the engine cylinder and the frequency of LSPI was investigated experimentally by Takeuchi et al.
High ignition temperature indicates higher heat capacity of a biomass [13].
The temperatures of starting thermal decomposition and maximum mass loss, influencing mainly the ignition temperatures of the studied materials vary slightly, which indicates that the variable heating rate of polyester material based on Polimal 1033 APy at the beginning of the 1st phase of fire, does not influence the rate of forming the fire environment.
The self-accelerating decomposition temperature, the thermal ignition temperature and the critical temperatures of thermal explosion are 436.03 K, 446.25 K and 469.02 K, respectively.
The higher octane is required solely to increase the ignition temperature of the fuel to avoid knocking.

Combustion of most oil shales alone is problematic due to their high ash content, high emissions of C[O.sub.2] and S[O.sub.2] during combustion, and high ignition temperature. Biomass is typically characterized by low ash content, neutral carbon, low S[O.sub.2] emissions, and high reactivity.
Whereas machinery incorporating a flameproof enclosure may exhibit interior temperatures above the ignition temperature for the particular gas, the principle behind the "increased safety" concept aims at avoiding unacceptably high temperatures at all points inside and on the motor.
Note that the temperature class for a component or instrument does not represent the operating temperature of the component but the maximum permissible surface temperature of the material making up the component, which has to remain below the corresponding ignition temperature when operating normally.
The warmer the weather, the quicker the rags can reach ignition temperature. Rags used for staining of soaked with solvents should be placed in a noncombustible container or a bucket of water with an airtight lid and stored away from the house.
