Abstract
The objective of this study is the experimental and numerical investigation of flame spread over a PMMA surface. A series of upward flame spread tests were carried out in a cylindrical combustion room, with measurements made for gas velocity, surface temperature and surface heat fluxes. A CFD based flame spread model was then used for the simulation of the experiment. This model consists of a four-equation turbulence model, an eddy-break-up (EBU) combustion model, a discrete transfer (DT) radiation model, a statistical narrow band (SNB) gas model, a soot model, and a pyrolysis model for

non-charring solids. Comparison was made between the numerical predictions and the experimental data. A reasonable qualitative agreement was found... (More)
