13 for a range of fuels and is seen to lie within fairly narrow limits. 02 ± 4% kJ/g of oxygen (omitting polyoxymethylene). Consequently, if the rate of oxygen consumption can be measured, the rate of heat release can be estimated directly. 2). It is the basis on which the cone calorimeter (Babrauskas, 1992a, 2008b) is founded, and has been adopted in other laboratory-scale apparatuses, such as the flammability test apparatus designed by the Factory Mutual Research Corporation (now FM Global) (Tewarson, 2008; ASTM, 2009).

2008). These include fluid dynamics, and heat and mass transfer. In view of its importance, the fundamentals of heat transfer will be reviewed in this chapter. , Batchelor, 1967; Landau and Lifshitz, 1987; Tritton, 1988; Kandola, 2008). In this chapter, certain heat transfer formulae are derived for use later in the text, although their relevance may not be immediately obvious. , 2008). It is recommended that such texts are used to provide the detail which cannot be included here. There are three basic mechanisms of heat transfer, namely conduction, convection and radiation.

16). g. 16). The rate of oxidation of methane may be equated to its rate of removal by reactions b–d. , Moore (1972) or Atkins and de Paula (2006). 28 An Introduction to Fire Dynamics where the square brackets indicate concentration, and kb , kc and kd are the appropriate rate coefficients (cf. 1)). Clearly, the rate of removal of methane depends directly on the concentrations of free atoms and radicals in the reacting system. e. 16). In this respect the hydrogen atom is arguably the most important of the reactive species in the system.
