The Thermal Properties Database  provides information on the burning characteristics of common items treated as fuel packages. The database has been broken down into four categories according to material types: (1) Metals, (2) Plastics, (3) Woods and (4) Miscellaneous. For each entry, the thermal properties at room temperature and/or ignition temperature have been compiled from various sources. Some materials may have multiple entries due to variations in estimates of thermal properties from one source to another.
