Some Notes on Fires in Compartments

Thomas, Philip H (1988) In LUTVDG/TVBB--3033--SE 3033.
Abstract
In the course of an examination of some data on the burning of furnishings and bedding in compartments, the measured rates of fire development in polyurethane mattresses have been compared with one of the standard inputs used in fire modelling with the Harvard Code. An apparant discrepancy is discussed and an explanation offered in physical terms. The explanation is germane to a comparison between the exponential and square law models of fire growth.
