  1. 1. The Development of a European Fire Classification System for Building Products - Test Methods and Mathematical Modelling

    Author : Björn Sundström; Avdelningen för Brandteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Building construction; Byggnadsteknik; Teknik; Technological sciences; Brandteknik; Fire Protection Engineering; Conflame; Cone Tools; FDS; CFD; Duhamel?s integral; Fire Growth Rate; FIGRA; Euroclass; SBI; Single Burning Item; Cone Calorimeter; Room Corner Test; fire modelling; Reaction to fire; flashover;

    Abstract : The fire technical properties of products are determining factors for the initiation and growth of fires. Measurement of fire technical properties and the understanding of how they relate to real hazards are therefore important for fire safety. READ MORE

  2. 2. Methodology for Assessing Learning from Incidents - a Process Industry Perspective

    Author : Anders Jacobsson; Avdelningen för Brandteknik; []
    Keywords : Accidents; Incidents; Learning from incidents; Learning cycle; Lesson learned; Process industry;

    Abstract : Learning from incidents (from minor disturbances to major accidents) is considered one of the most important ways in the process industry to learn from experiences for improving safety performance. Most companies have a formal incident learning system and considerable resources are used for reporting incidents and for utilising these experiences to prevent future incidents. READ MORE

  3. 3. Demand for Extinguishing Media in Manual Fire Fighting

    Author : Stefan Särdqvist; Avdelningen för Brandteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; fire fighting; Fire brigade; fire suppression; extinguishing agents; extinction; Technological sciences; Teknik;

    Abstract : Risk analysis and intervention planning are important in fire prevention and risk management strategies. This study has shown that it is possible to use fire safety engineering models to estimate the development of fires on a realistic scale, and the corresponding requirement for extinguishing media.

  4. 4. Experimental and Theoretical Study of Rack Storage Fires

    Author : Haukur Ingason; Avdelningen för Brandteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; response time; in-rack sprinkler; flame heat transfer; gas velocity; gas temperature; flame height; in-rack fire plume; Rack storage fire; fire growth rate; Technological sciences; Teknik;

    Abstract : A theoretical and experimental study of rack storage fires and responsiveness of sprinklers is presented. Free-burn tests with non-combustible and combustible material were carried out in reduced scale with verification in large scale. READ MORE

  5. 5. Uncertainty and Risk Analysis in Fire Safety Engineering

    Author : Håkan Frantzich; Avdelningen för Brandteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; event tree; fire engineering design; reliability index; FOSM; Monte Carlo simulation; Risk analysis; uncertainty analysis; response surface.; Technological sciences; Teknik;

    Abstract : Two Quantitative Risk Analysis (QRA) methods are presented which can be used to quantify the risk to occupants in, for example, a building in which a fire has broken out. The extended QRA considers the inherent uncertainty in the variables explicitly. READ MORE
