Thomas, P.H., 1964. THE SPREAD OF FIRE IN FINE FUELS IN STILL AIR. Fire Research Notes 540
Some of the experiments by Curry and Pons on the spread of fire in thin fuels in still air have been analyzed. Except for the thinnest fuel and the most tightly packed beds the rate of spread in all the experiments can be described as between 4 and 8 cm/s per sq cm of vertical cross section, according to the calues of voids per unit surface area. These results compare closely with those obtained by Pons et al for wood cribs. These have been discussed in a previous report but certain aspects of that discussion are continued here.
