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

    University dissertation from Fire Safety Engineering and Systems Safety

    Author : Björn Sundström; [2007]
    Keywords : 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. Reaction to fire performance of wood and other building products

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Byggvetenskap

    Author : Lazaros Tsantaridis; [2003]
    Keywords : building products; charring of wood; cone calorimeter; fire retardant treated wood; fire tests; ignitability; mass loss; rate of heat release;

    Abstract : The theme of this thesis is the reaction to fire performanceof wood and other building products, andparticularly thematerial fire properties time to ignition, rate of heat releaseand smoke production. These properties have been measured by asmall-scale fire test method, the Cone Calorimeter, andpresented for different types of building products. READ MORE

  3. 3. Combustion dynamics and melt dripping of ethylene-acrylate copolyer composites

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Roland H. Krämer; Ulf W. Gedde; Mats Jonsson; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; methacrylic acid; ethylene; calcium carbonate; ionomer; nanoparticles; intumescence; halogen-free; flame retardant; melt dripping; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Organic chemistry Polymer chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Organisk kemi Polymerkemi;

    Abstract : The degradation and combustion of blends of ethylene-acryalte copolymer with calcium carbonate and silicone were studied by a combination of flammability tests, in-situ measurements and analytical experiments.Compounds of poly(ethylene-co-methacrylic acid) blended with precipitated calcium carbonate nanoparticles were prepared.

  4. 4. Mechanism of a polyolefin based effervescent flame retardant material

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Anna Hermansson; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; flame retardant; Casico; effervescence; silicone elastomer; intumescent structure; calcium carbonate; polyolefin;

    Abstract : ABSTRACTFire safety issues are becoming increasingly important in modern society and cables are one potential fire risk since they can start and/or spread a fire. As a result of environmental and safety issues having to do with flame retardants based on halogens, much attention has lately been given to finding halogen free alternatives. READ MORE

  5. 5. Limiting conditions for a sustained flame over condensed fuels : Analysis by experiments and stagnant layer theory

    University dissertation from Division of Fire Safety Engineering, Lund University

    Author : Frida Vermina Plathner; [2020]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Critical mass flux; diffusion flame; extinction; sustained ignition; chemical heat of combustion; Convective heat transfer coefficient; external heat flux;

    Abstract : Ignition and extinction characteristics of a material determine whether a fire will be initiated and grow. In fire safety engineering, where modellers deal with a multitude of materials, simplified thresholds are commonly used to determine when ignition and extinction occur. READ MORE
