A Contribution For The Investigation Of Natural Fires In Large Compartments

Hagen, E. and Hakesever, A., 1986. A Contribution For The Investigation Of Natural Fires In Large Compartments. Fire Safety Science 1: 149-158. doi:10.3801/IAFSS.FSS.1-149


To provide fundamental knowledge about fire development and fire spread in large fire compartments, a project "Natural Fire" is established in "Sonderforschungsbereich 148" at the Technical University of Braunschweig. The full scale fire experiments are carried out in a fire room w i t h variable sizes between 500 m3 and 2000 m3, using the facilities of the Technical Research Centre of Finland. The first test series, which should determine the behaviour of the burning rate in dependence of the ventilation-conditions and the fire-load-configurations, is presented and the experimental results are discussed in this contribution.
