Theoretical and experimental analysis of turbulent
upward flame spread along a vertical solid is presented.
A conventional flame spread model based on a linearized
flame height approximation is generalized to incorporate
burnout effects. The model is verified against
full-scale flame spread tests using material heat
release data obtained from intermediate-scale tests in
which the time history of surface heat flux during the
flame spread tests was reproduced.
