Selected Topics; Material Flammability

The fundamental mechanisms responsible for gaseous fuel generation by heated polymeric solids are examined. Experimental techniques frequently applied to the analysis of these mechanisms are surveyed and a theoretical framework describing these mechanisms is developed. This framework is applied to analysis of a range of standard flammability assessment methods including constant surface burning and flame spreading scenarios. Approaches to augmentation of material composition to improve their fire resistance are discussed
