Density of test bodies and its effect on burning rate of fire-retardant treated samples
University of Žilina in Žilina, Faculty of Security Engineering, Žilina, Slovakia
The thesis focuses on the effect of wood density on the results of fire tests. Wood (spruce wood in particular) is one of the most commonly used materials in many sectors - building constructions, furniture manufacture etc. With such a broad application, its fire technical properties must not be neglected. Fire retardants should be therefore used to prevent the fire from occurring and spreading.
