Wraight, H.G., Webster, C.T. and Thomas, P.H., 1957. THE HEAT TRANSFER FROM BURNING FABRICS. Fire Research Notes 340
The rates of heat transfer from burning fabrics to a nearby surface have been measured by two methods for materials of different weights and composition. The maximum heat flux from the flames is about 0.7 cal cm-2sec-1 and the total dose increases with the weight of the the fabric, and is about one-third of the calorific value, but all practical fabrics are capable of causing severe burns.
