The leaked fuel evaporates on the hot plate and the yielding fuel vapor moves into the oxygen-containing atmosphere, and autoignites somewhere above the plate. The model describing the movement and reaction of the fuel vapor has been made and solved. The results showed some prospective autoignition area of the vapor. The maximum of the reaction rate was chosen as the ignition indicator. So the concluded autoignition place is very close to the experimental result.
