Abstract:

A computer model was developed to calculate the heat release rate of aircraft cabin composite panels based on the panels thermophysical, chemical, and geometric properties. The model calculates the temperature through the panel as a function of time and uses this along with measured kinetic constants to deduce mass loss rate which is multiplied by the heat of combustion of the volatiles. The calculated results are in general agreement with the measured heat release obtained from the Ohio State University OSU calorimeter.... Heat Release Rate, Calorimeter, Fire.
