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 ...
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 ...
Smouldering and self-sustaining reactions in solids: an experimental approach
(The University of Edinburgh, 2011)
Smouldering combustion governs the burning of many materials in the built and natural environments. Smouldering is flameless, heterogeneous combustion which occurs when oxygen reacts with the surface of a solid fuel. ...
