Abstract

In this paper, experiments were carried out by using a burner in order to predict flame spread along the wooden surface of wall in the case of localized fire scenario and the result was compared with the values obtained by using numerical model. On the basis of agreement between the theoretical and experimental results, the calculation for flame spread of localized fire of 3MW for 1200 seconds was carried out.
