In this work, a new empirical method has been developed that covers an innovative prototype instrumentation with thermocouples that allows the direct measurement of the metal temperature in any location inside the prototype; the boiling test methodology and the postprocess to check when CHF is reached.
To assess the efficiency and potential saving of fuelwood of a new and improved prototype of wood-burning cookstove, three well-known protocols were used: (1) the water boiling test (WBT), which assesses thermal efficiency, boiling time, burning rate, and specific fuel consumption (SFC); (2) the controlled cooking test (CCT), which was implemented in 30 rural households to establish the cookstove's efficiency in terms of SFC; and (3) the kitchen performance test (KPT), also applied in 30 rural households, to measure impact in real household conditions.
Such methods are the constant heat output, constant temperature rise, constant time and water boiling test (Bhattacharge, et al, 1984).
Moreover, it was not possible in this study to manufacture boards exhibiting the recommended moisture resistance after the boiling test for the adopted resination rate.
The density, porosity index, compressive strength, ignition time and water boiling test were measure as stated in a number of articles (Nigerian Industrial Standard, 1979; Nigerian Industrial Standard 53, 1979; Eboatu and Garba, 1990).

Table 1 shows the results of water boiling test and salt-spray test for various ureasil-based pretreatments and also for commercial systems.
Two-dimensional Fourier transform was used to assess the geometric characteristics of the spatial domain (SEM) images before and after the boiling test (Fig.
