Thomas, P.H., 1957. ON THE EFFECT OF PREHEATING ON THE IGNITION OF CELLULOSIC MATERIALS. Fire Research Notes 328
There are some data of a limited character which suggest that heating cellulosic materials makes them more easily ignitable or flammable and that subsequent heating appears to reverse this trend. Such a reversal suggests that either more than one reaction is involved in decomposition or that there is some physical loss of active components. A theoretical model on such lines is discussed and is shown to exhibit qualitative features of the kind observed experimentally.
