Yajun Huang is a joint supervision Ph.D. student from the University of Science and Technology of China. After Prof. Patrick van Hees’ valuable advice, he have begun a series of flame spread experiments with the help of Dan Madsen and Dr. Jonathan Wahlqvist.
The study is a part of the cooperation and exchange funded by the Swedish Foundation for international cooperation in scientific research and education (STINT) and the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC).
The experimental series includes studies of flame spread on PMMA sheets under the effect of heated wind. Subjects under study in the experiment are:
- Characteristics of solid material combustion behavior, including pyrolysis rates, mass loss rates, flame geometry structures, as well as fire spread rates for various heated wind velocities.
- Study the complex effects of ambient wind on boundary layer combustion, including the flame turbulence characteristics, as well as the non-linear evolution of flame spread behavior over solid surface with heated wind velocity.
