Polymer combustion: Effects of flame emissivity

Journal Article


Abstract


  • We present a nonlinear dynamical systems model developed to gain an insight into the flammability of polymeric materials. Regimes of particular interest from the viewpoint of fire retardancy are identified and exhibited in steady-state diagrams. The variation in parameter space of these regimes as a function of the emissivity of the flame is investigated.
