Abstract

In order to analyze thermal safety of fireworks and crackers, thermal explosion models of three kinds of sphere fireworks and crackers with different structures are achieved on the basis of thermal explosion theory, and thermal resistance of shell and effective Biot number are deduced as for boundary conditions. Two models are calculated with target-shooting method in Matlab program, and the rationality is proved through comparison of numerical solution and classical solution. Meanwhile, calculation steps are shown about a type of firework. The study has a great significance to thermal safety analysis of fireworks and crackers.
