The study of preignition processes stemmed from the need to more fully explain the ignition and combustion mechanisms of metals. The experiments were carried out on particles of electrolytic zirconium 99.96 Zr, megnetothermic titanium 94.6 Ti, and zirconium hydride ZrH2. Microphotographing technique is being used to estimate the growth of oxide films on metal particles ranging from 100 to 520 micrometers under conditions of dynamic heating.
