About This Item


Full Description

Full-scale burning tests were performed on wood, poly-methylmethacrylate (PMMA), and methanol fires in a compartment with forced ventilation. The gas temperatures at seven positions were measured together with the transient mass loss rate of the fuel. Average temperatures of the hot gases were then compared with the values predicted by a simple model proposed by Deal and Beyler (1990). The heat loss coefficient of the compartment was found to be an important parameter, and an empirical parameter is fitted from these tests with small fires.
