a b s t r a c tA quantitative understanding of the processes that take place in the condensed phase of a burning material is critical for prediction of ignition and growth of fires. In the current study, a model of burning of two widely-used charring and intumescing polymers, bisphenol A polycarbonate and poly(vinyl chloride), was developed and validated. The modeling was performed using a flexible computational framework called ThermaKin, which had been developed in our laboratory. ThermaKin solves time-reso…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
