Width effects on downward flame spread over poly(methyl methacrylate) sheets
Cites background or methods or result from "Width effects on downward flame spr..."
...This method is verified to be able to predict downward flame spread rate [10,14]....
...Our previous study  has built a predictive model of 3-D downward fire spread over PMMA in free conditions, as shown in Figure 3....
...In our previous study , a calculating formula was proposed to predict the steady flame spread rate based on heat transfer theory and energy conservation equation,...
...Heat transfer at the leading edge of the flame is enhanced since the stand-off distance is smaller and oxygen supply is rich there [2,7,12,14]....
...α, β, γ are characteristic angles that emerged on sample residue in the steady-burning stage and they are unchanged with sample width according to the experimental results and related studies [2,12,14]....

...Apparently, mass loss rate is concerned with the flame spread rate in steady-state stage, and the relationship is presented in equation (2)....
...By substituting equation (12) into equation (2), the computed mass loss rate as a function of width and thickness is shown as follows...
