The effect of convecting heating on the ignition of a combustible solid is investigated. The investigation considers two distinct influences of the convection process, namely the magnitude of the convection coefficient and the magnitude of the external temperature relative to a critical level for reaction. The results indicate how various extreme conditions can either speed up or prolong ignition. Also it is shown how various combinations of these extremes can offset each other.
