ABSTRACT

Three independent methods were applied in laboratory conditions to produce fire storms. The similarity criteria of the solved problem, the Grashof and Prandtl numbers and the rotational Froude number have been found. It has been demonstrated that formation of a fire storm does not depend on the ignition source, but is determined by the value of the heat-flux density.
