Rate of heat release measurements with the Swedish box test

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Abstract The Swedisn box apparatus was modified to include an oxygen analysis of the exhaust gases to be compared with the conventional exhaust gas temperature measurement. A slow-burning material shows good correlation between the temperature measurement and the rate of heat release. A fast-burning material, however, consumes all the available oxygen, and the temperature measurement becomes a measure of only the thermal properties of the material.
