is a process where a combustible mixture spontaneously reacts and releases heat in absence of any concentrated source of ignition such as a spark or a flame (Lefebvre, 1998).
Therefore, simulations can augment experiments in understanding the complex relationship between turbulent flow, mixing and chemical reaction in flames, and autoignition
in simple geometric configurations.
Stabilizers are chemical ingredients added to propellants at the time of manufacture to decrease the rate of propellant degradation and reduce the probability of autoignition
during its expected useful life.
This system creates temperature and concentration gradients that permit safe mixing of fuel with air at temperatures above the autoignition
of the fuel.
ASTM standard tests exist to measure the minimum explosible concentration, the minimum ignition energy (high voltage spark), minimum autoignition
temperatures, maximum pressure generated and the maximum rate of pressure rise (which is a measure of the destructive force).
In some cases, temperatures may exceed the autoignition
point of the fluid.
Flammability (limits of flammability, flashpoints, autoignition
temperatures), risk quantification
was faulty, and that the oil should have been pumped in a closed pipe since it was above its autoignition
temperature and represented a fire hazard.
The minimum temperature at which a dust will autoignite when exposed to air heated in a furnace is the minimum autoignition

In addition, no problems with combustion instabilities, flashback, or autoignition
have been observed.
