Thermography of Wood-Base Panels During Fire Tests in Laboratory and Field Conditions

The paper represents the experimental study of combustion over the surface of a vertically-mounted oriented wood-based panels (plywood, chipboard and oriented strand board) under different environmental conditions. The IR thermography was used as a diagnostic method. An infrared camera JADE J530SB was used to obtain the sequences of thermograms characterizing the heat flow pattern on the surface of the sample during vertical combustion and determine the velocity of the combustion wave under laboratory and field conditions. In addition, during the field tests the change in the angle of the combustion front was estimated depending on time.
