Simms, D.L., 1960. EXPERIMENTS ON THE IGNITION OF CELLULOSIC MATERIALS BY RADIATION. Fire Research Notes 423
This report describes some measurements of the temperature of the stream of smoky gases emitted from a heated cellulosic solid. The exothermic reactions in this stream can lead to self-ignition and flaming and the report discusses the effects of various factors, e.g. the size of the area heated by radiation, on the likelihood of ignition. It is pointed out that the occurrence of turbulence in the stream of gases is important for ignition to occur.
