Woolliscroft, M.J., 1968. A STATISTICAL ANALYSIS OF SOME RATES OF SPREAD OF FOREST FIRES. Fire Research Notes 732
Data on the rates of spread of forest and heathland fires have been examined using elementary statistics to see whether any useful conclusions can be drawn. Fires appear to be divisible into two main categories according to the statistical distribution of their rates of spread. This could have some justification in theory. Upper limits of rate of spread have been calculated for the categories of fire described.
