The relationship between the nutrient status and flammability of forest fuels

Mak, Edwin Hon Tak


An investigation is reported of the relationships between nutrient status of foliar and litter materials from Australian forests and the three components of flammability, namely, ignitability, sustainability, and combustibility. The Limiting Oxygen Index (LOI) method was chosen as an index of ignitability and sustainability, and combustibility has been measured by Thermogravimetric Analysis . (TGA) and Derivative Thermogravimetric Analysis (DTG). Results derived from LOI and TGA are seen...[Show more]
