Convective and radiative heat transfer rates to the inside surface of an aircraft cabin containing post-combustion gas from a ‘pre-flashover fire’ are calculated. In correlating the result with the likelihood of flashover, the need for consideration of the ease of thermal degradation of the combustible contents of the cabin is emphasised.
