SUMMARY In large-scale fires, the input of energy to burning materials occurs predominantly by radiative transfer. The in-depth (rather than just surface) absorption of radiant energy by a polymer influences its ignition time and burning rate. The present investigation examines two methods for obtaining the absorption coefficient of polymers for infrared radiation from high-temperature sources: a broadband method and a spectral method. Data on the total average broadband transmittance for 11… CONTINUE READING
