||An approach to the phenomenon of spontaneous combustion
||Aproximación al fenómeno de las combustiones espontáneas [in Spanish]|
||4th Quarter 1999, Vol.19, No.76, p.37-47. Illus. 9 ref.
||Spontaneous combustion mechanisms and other mechanisms of internal warming that produce similar effects as biological warming and exothermal chemical decomposition are described, and some examples are given (grain silos, ignition of hot processed materials, reactivity on contact with oxygen for varnishes, animal fats or plant oils). In addition, guidance is given to persons who are confronted with this type of phenomenon during their work or their research activities.
