Abstract: The three-dimensional effects of flame spread over thin solid materials were experimentally studied using a natural-convection-suppressing horizontal narrow-channel. In a sufficiently wide narrow-channel, the variation of flame spread against the width of the material sample showed different trends for different gas flow speeds and oxygen concentrations. The extent of three-dimensional effects was inversely proportional to the gas flow speed or its square. Near quenching extinction limits, the effects were sig…
