For our system with = 20 and q = 10, we estimate the dimensionless ignition time as i = exp 20 (20)(10) = 2 . 42583 10 6 . (7.359) This is a surprisingly good estimate, given the complexity of the problem. Recall the nu- merical solution showed ignition for 2 . 7 10 6 . In terms of dimensional time, ignition time prediction becomes t i = exp a q , (7.360) = 1 a parenleftbigg RT o E parenrightbigg parenleftBigg c v T o h o T o ,A h o T o ,B parenrightBigg exp parenleftbigg E RT o parenrightbigg . (7.361) Note the ignition is suppressed if the ignition time is lengthened, which happens when he activation energy E is increased, since the exponential sensitivity is stronger than the algebraic sensitivity, the energy of combustion ( h o T o ,A h o T o ,B ) is decreased because it takes longer to react...
