Simple And Not So Simple Models For Compartment Fires

Curtat, M.R. and Bodart, X.E., 1986. Simple And Not So Simple Models For Compartment Fires. Fire Safety Science 1: 637-646. doi:10.3801/IAFSS.FSS.1-637


Simple predictive models can be very useful for engineering applications or education in fire safety. Two aspects of compartment fires are addressed here: the growing fire (risk of flashover) and the fully developed fire ( fire resistance problems). For each aspect, two predictive methods are presented: a simple model needing small calculation equipment and a computer code based on a zone model. Some results are given as examples showing the possibilities and limits of these methods
