Abstract

Recently the fire protection engineering community has started to use comprehensive pyrolysis models, to analyze the thermal performance of fire resistant polymers. In order to use these pyrolysis models material kinetics must be understood. This study evaluated recently proposed simplified kinetic modeling and analysis techniques. Limited available literature on this topic makes it pertinent research to add to the fire protection engineering field.
