Material Flammability: Two-Dimensional Burning Model for Aircraft Materials

The purpose of this research is to understand and predict the burning rate and flame spread characteristics of typical representative aircraft interior or body materials. This will help to understand the nature of current Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) flammability tests and help to develop improved materials. The approach is to exercise, extend and validate a pyrolysis model called ThermaKin.
