Abstract

Purpose. The article is devoted to the method of carrying out experimental studies to determine the geometric parameters of a flame in the burning of a gable roof made of combustible materials.

Methods. A fragment of the gable roof was exposed to fire to determine the geometric parameters of the flame.

Findings. Existing methods for calculating fire gap do not take into account the geometric parameters of the roof.

Application field of research. The experimental data will be used in determining the geometric parameters of the radiating surface, taking into account the type of fuel material of the roofing and the angle of inclination of the roof.

Conclusions. Experimental studies will clarify the methodology for calculating fire gaps.
