Abstract: 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…
