Developing charring rate models for Chinese species based on the thermodynamic theory

Developing charring rate models for Chinese species based on the thermodynamic theory In respect of fire resistance and fire integrity, the charring rate is the most important property of timber. It has been a worldwide research focus to develop a charring model for predicting the charring rate. The objective of this study is to establish an integral charring model, which is based on a tailored thermodynamic equation for commercial Chinese timber species. At 50 kW/m2 heat flux, results show that the cone calorimeter can equal the furnace trials for testing the charring rate and also establish a charring rate model with a relative error of less than 20%. The integral model at a heat flux of 50 kW/m2 is safer to predict the charring rate than the other two models. Wood Science and Technology Springer Journals
