Significant parameters for predicting flame spread
Flame spread is considered on a vertical wall surface in a vented enclosure. A theoretical formulation is developed to describe the burning and fire spread behavior and its response to the changing environmental conditions of the room. These formulations were kept simple in form, but consistent with current levels of accuracy and completeness. The primary aim was to establish the relevant and significant set of dimensionless parameters which govern the fire spread process. These are given in terms of room geometric factors and wall flammability properties. No solution of the equations was developed.
