For the first time, fire gases were extracted directly from the combustion boundary within various wood species subjected to fire and were subsequently analysed by means of GC/MS. Variations in the composition of the fire gases under increasing thermal load were continuously monitored and comparisons were made between the different wood species. Relatively(More)
Introduction Despite its combustibility wood used in construction offers great advantages, in particular under protection from fire hazards aspects. This refers e.g. to the very low heat conductivity index, low heat capacity, insignificant expansion or deformation due to temperature load, the slow reduction in loadbearing capacity under exposure to fire and(More)
