AbstractThe rate of burning (pyrolysis) of cribs of wood and non- dripping synthetic polymers has been studied at various levels of forced ventilation. It has been found that the burning of non-charring fuels is virtually unaffected by the ventilation level, whereas charring materials burn faster up to a maximum as the flow rate of air increases.
