Title of the thesis:Heat flux influence on burning propagation of wood products
Summary:The dissertation deals with the initiation phase of flame and smoldering of burning oriented strand board. The influence of heat flux on thermal degradation of OSB boards, time to ignition, heat release rate, mass loss rate using thermal analysis, vertical electrical radiation panel and cone calorimeter methods was studied. Significant information on the influence of different methods, the different orientation of the specimens, the heat flux density and the thickness of the material on time to ignition and heat release were obtained.
Key words:cone calorimeter, thermal analysis, heat release rate, thermal degradation, oriented strand board, time to ignition, heat flux
