A Framework For Utilizing Fire Property Tests

Cleary, T.G. and Quintiere, J.G., 1991. A Framework For Utilizing Fire Property Tests. Fire Safety Science 3: 647-656. doi:10.3801/IAFSS.FSS.3-647


A complete approximate set of equations is developed to describe fire spread over a surface and its resultant energy release. Wall, floor, and ceiling orientations are considered. The needed model data are couched in terms of available test method results, e. g. , Cone Calorimeter and LIFT apparatuses. Several applications are presented to show how energy release rates can be predicted and how well they represent real data from full-scale and model room lining experiments.
