A heat-transfer model has been developed for two common, inherently flame-resistant fabrics, Nomex® IIIA and Kevlar®/PBI, when subjected to the high heat fluxes used in bench top tests, such as the thermal protective performance (TPP) test, ASTM D 4108. The apparent heat capacity method was used to model thermochemical reactions in these materials with information from thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA) and differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) tests. Also included were in-depth radiation… CONTINUE READING
