In this research we investigated the effects of some structural parameters of woven fabrics on their flame resistance. The samples were weaved from different yarn to optimize the flame resistance of fabric. Also this research develops a special method to prevent ignition propagation through a protective fabric that exposed flame using of glass yarn barrier in cotton fabric. Experimental studies of fabric flammability and fabric burning behaviors are carried out based upon standard test method (BS 5438) and a simulation proposed method.

Finally, experimental results were evaluated statistically using a MANOVA method. The results showed density have significant effect in both method but the glass barrier has different behavior. The statistic models were obtained to predict the flame spread in different area of fabric and the extend of spread of flame.
