Title of Document: PREDICTION OF UPWARD FLAME SPREAD OVER POLYMERS Directed by: Associate Professor Stanislav I. Stoliarov, PhD Department of Fire Protection Engineering In this work, the existing understanding of flame spread dynamics is enhanced through an extensive study of the heat transfer from flames spreading vertically upwards across 5 cm wide, 20 cm tall samples of extruded Poly (Methyl Methacrylate) (PMMA). These experiments have provided highly spatially resolved measurements of… CONTINUE READING
