Abstract:

Experiments were conducted with a one-eighth model room to determine the effects of initiating fire size, room depth, window size, and fire location on the occurrence and time of room flashover. Data were also collected to indicate the influence of these parameters on the ability of fire to jump spaces devoid of combustibles. Author
