Title: Improving the efficiency, safety, and utility of woodburning units. Quarterly report No. WB-7

Abstract

Work completed to June 15, 1979 to improve the efficiency, safety, and utility of wood heating units is reported. Work has continued on all phases of the project. In particular, the studies on creosote formation have produced more results. Tests have been conducted to reduce the infiltration of room air into fireplaces. A preliminary infrared photographic study has been carried out with a wood stove and a fireplace. Tests have been set up to study creosote fires. The first draft of the Design Handbook for Residential Woodburning has been submitted for review.
