Abstract
Experimental results on forest combustibles (FC) burning are treated in the paper. The relations V equals V0exp(-W2/W02) are proposed to describe the dependence of the burning front movement velocity on the humidity W (V0 equals 3 mm/s is the velocity of the burning front movement for dry FC). Maximum radiation temperature of the condensed phase burning within the range of the 3 to 12 micrometers , reconstructed by the blackbody radiation law at the radiation coefficient (epsilon) of 1, is 800 - 900 K for dry needles of pine and cedar. The higher is humidity, the lower is the maximum radiation temperature.
