Lawson, D.I., 1956. THE FLAMMABILITY OF FABRICS. Fire Research Notes 275
The measurement of the speed of propagation of flame over fabrics is discussed and some general relations between flame speed and the weight of the fabric per unit area are described. Methods are outlined for the measurement of vertical flame speed with simple robust apparatus. A survey is described by which it is hoped to examine the relation between the incidence and severity of burning accidents and the vertical flame speed of the materials involved.
