Modelling the Propagation of Forward and Opposed Smouldering Combustion
A computational study has been carried out to investigate smouldering ignition and propagation in polyurethane foam. The one-dimensional, transient, governing equations for smouldering combustion in a porous fuel are ...
Computational Model of Forward and Opposed Smoldering Combustion in Microgravity
(The Combustion Institute, 2006-08-06)
A novel computational model of smoldering combustion capable of predicting both forward and opposed propagation is developed. This is accomplished by considering the one-dimensional, transient, governing equations for ...
Modeling of One-Dimensional Smoldering of Polyurethane in Microgravity Conditions
(The Combustion Institute, 2004-08)
Results are presented from a model of forward smoldering combustion of polyurethane foam in microgravity. The transient one-dimensional numerical-model is based on that developed at the University of Texas at Austin. The ...
Experimental and numerical investigation of the thermal decomposition of materials at three scales: application to polyether polyurethane foam used in upholstered furniture
(École Nationale Supérieure de Mécanique et d'Aérotechnique, 2009-11)
The fire behaviour of polyether polyurethane foam has been studied at three scales: matter scale, small scale and product scale. A method to determine the thermal decomposition mechanism of materials was defined at the ...
