We are in the process of developing a burning-rate model
for char-forming materials. Currently, the combustion
of a horizontal slab of wood, exposed to an external
radiant source, is being modeled in terms of two coupled
sub-models which simulate gas and solid (condensed)
phase processes. Although there are still problems with
the solid-phase model, the results to date are
