Abstract

Ignition and flame spread properties on selected types of wood are elaborated. The tests are established in a new test setup in which the test specimen can be fixed in different angles due to a horizontal level. The heat exposing the test objects is arranged as a convective flux. This principle is somewhat in contrast to more typical radiation established fluxes. The material tested were Siberian Larch, Danish Larch, Cedar, Pinewood and Douglas Fir. The impact of the roughness of the surfaces was further investigated for Pinewood. Six different degrees of roughness were investigated. An increasing roughness was found to give rise to an increased flame spread volocity.
