Using results previously reported for the spontaneous heating of bituminous coals, the Frank-Kamenetskii parameter is calculated in respect of each for the cubic reactant assembly used in the original experimental work. Comparisons are made with the results of other attempts to obtain this quantity by means of ignition experiments. (C) 1998 Published by Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
