Tests were conducted with ISO 9705 room to investigate the combustion behavior of medium size wood cribs. Cribs were burnt at the center and corner inside ISO room and also under the hood of the ISO room. Effective heat of combustion and increase rate of heat release rate in growth phase is compared for cribs with different nominal heat release rate and in different positions. The relationship between scaled steady mass loss rate and porosity factor of wood crib is quite different from those in literatures. The average effect heat of combustion is 12.18 MJ kg−1 , which is close to commonly accepted value 12 MJ kg−1 for wood sample burning with diffusion flame.
