Knowledge of the damage caused to timber floors by the burning of liquids is of importance in the investigation of fires where the use of accelerants is suspected. This project has examined the damage caused to a piece of wood by a pool burning on its surface. Actual sections of floors were also constructed and their behaviour in fires, following the use of an accelerant, studied.
