Wraight, H.G., 1969. THE IGNITION OF MOTOR TYRE SAMPLES. Fire Research Notes 742
Samples of rubber cut from a used motor tyre have been exposed to thermal radiation in order to examine the behaviour of this type of material and in particular to determine the lowest intensity of radiation at which it would ignite. The results show rubber is perhaps somewhat more difficult to ignite than a common species of softwood.
