Description: Basic classification of forest fires and methods of fight is considered against them. The analysis of extinguishing of forest fires is conducted through explosions. An explosive method allows with more high performance, than in the case of the use of engineering technique, to create barrage bars. Realization of explosive method with the use of detonating aerofuel mixtures provides more slow fading of pressure in front of shock wave, that allows to extend the area of effective influence of explosion.
Keywords: explosive method, forest combustible material, by volume of-detonating mixture
