dc.description.abstract The principle objective of this investigation was to establish a methodology to compare and rank fuelwoods. This methodology would allow a wide range of tree species to be compared and ranked according to their combustion properties. Such a comparison would assist in the selection of species for woodlot development. This investigation attempted to examine the combustion kinetics of small samples in an attempt to achieve the stated aim. Initially a literature review was performed. This covered anecdotal information on fuelwood preferences, an overview of wood composition, structure and combustion, and an in depth review of existing work on small sample combustion. en_ZA
