This study examined the combustion and thermal characteristics of domestic woods in Korea. Wood was confirmed by a cone calorimeter according to the KS F ISO 5660-1 standard. The combustion properties of the wood were measured in terms of the heat release rate (HRR), total heat released (THR), mass lose rate (MLR), and ignition time (time to ignition; TTI). Also, the thermal properties were measured by thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) to determine the thermal stability of wood. The result of this experiment would be useful for fundamentals of guiding the combustion properties and thermal stability using wood application.

Keywords: combustion properties, domestic wood, cone calorimeter, heat release rate, thermogravimetric analysis
