In my limited understanding there is a smolder phase and then the main reaction. But I don't really understand it. But if I had to take a stab at it I would think that it's smoldered until the Bismuth trioxide is consumed and then there is a sudden Goldshmit reaction while it's already red hot? Am I even close? The formula I use is 37 bismuth trioxide 37 cupric oxide and the rest mg / al. I would love to hear how this really works. I find it rather fascinating

Unless you have flash spectrometry  you will need to make assumptions about the reaction and all it's intermediates.

it really doesn't matter I guess just curious about the science. The science and the math always comes after the experimentation. Just like all the formulas in the electrical field were developed after someone tinkered and the experimented and did Endless trial and error just to make something work. Then they come along with a math formula that seems to explain everything. But that's not what came first.
