The act of igniting, kindling, or setting on fire.
The state of being ignited or kindled.
A process which initiates the combustion of the compressed air/fuel mixture in the combustion chamber. In a spark-ignition engine, the mixture is ignited by an electric spark; in a diesel engine, the self-igniting mixture must be preheated by glow plugs when a cold start is performed.
Firing; setting on fire; provision for firing.
The initiation of combustion.
The means by which burning is started.
the mechanism that ignites the fuel in an internal-combustion engine
The process of lighting a fire or causing a fuel to start burning.
Complete system used to step up battery voltage to a higher voltage and deliver it to the spark plug to complete the combustion process. When the key is turned on, the ignition system is energized.
Starting a combustion reaction. For example, lighting a gas flame. The gas must come in contact with a high enough temperature that it "catches fire". This is done in furnaces by a standing pilot (a small fire which burns all the time), or a spark ignition, or a glowing red-hot heating element.
The setting on fire of the propellant powder charge by the primer.
Self-sustained fusion burn of light nuclei.
An electrical system used to ignite the fuel mix in an internal combustion engine.
1. The keyswitch to start the engine with the ignition key. 2. The start of combustion of the air-fuel mixture in the combustion chamber, in a petrol engine which is ignited by the high voltage spark.
The lighting of a fuel to make it burn.
Electric starts! Fly, glide, fly, glide... These engines use spark plugs and a magneto coil to generate the spark. But - the electric start can't be beat
Elevating the temperature of a substance to the point of causing a combustion reaction.
The process of initiating self-sustained combustion.
Setting on fire or catching fire.
The mechanism used to start the engine. Typically a toggle switch or keyed ignition will be available.
When plasma heating by fusion alphas exceeds plasma heat loss. See also equilibrium burn. (back)
The firing of a spark plug to ignite the air/fuel mixture in the combustion chamber.
The process or method of igniting the fuel-air mixture in an internal combustion engine; most commonly it is accomplished by an electrical spark in a gasoline or LP-Gas engine; by heat of compression in a Diesel engine.
The initiation of burning, either of a priming compound or a propellant.
The beginning of flame propagation or burning; the start of a fire.
The starting of combustion.
Ignition is a regional Burning Man event celebrating the principles of radical self-reliance, participative art and culture, fire. The event is held in September and is put on by the BrÃ»leurs de MontrÃ©al Burners.
