Abstract

Thermokinetic constants for the drying process of different steppe fuels are determined using the developed method for solving inverse kinetic problems on the basis of obtained experimental data. The anatomical structure of the investigated fuels is found to be a dominant parameter influencing on evaporation. The basic conductor of combustion is proposed for prediction of fire hazard for the investigated area.
