Good morning,

I should carry out a simulation in which the objective is to determine how long after the ignition some compressed bales of cardboard in storage ignite. Therefore, if, based on the spatial configuration of the material in storage, the fire is able to spread within the activity.

The material I would like to create will have an ignition temperature of around 400 ° C and will burn with a preset HRR curve.

When I create the Surface, I am asked to specify the Thickness parameter, what value should be entered to have a simulation as correct as possible?

Equal to the size of my bale? then 1.0m?

Thanks in advance to everyone for their contribution
