This thesis is concerned with the analysis of the main combustion products CO, CO2 and smoke from EVA nanocomposites, EVA and PVC cable materials under various ventilation conditions. Developed at Salford University this thesis describes attempts to improve and modify the Purser Furnace, by incorporation of a secondary oxidiser in order to facilitate the total carbon balance of the combustion, and a variable stepper motor to enable improved control over the fuel feed rate.
