A Review Of Formulae For T- Equivalent

Law, M., 1997. A Review Of Formulae For T- Equivalent. Fire Safety Science 5: 985-996. doi:10.3801/IAFSS.FSS.5-985


Formulae for t-equivalent, from Ingberg to Eurocode 1, are reviewed and compared with experimental data for compartment fires. Results for some deep compartment fires suggest that current heat balance models may need re-assessment. It is suggested that t-equivalent is not a useful parameter for design purposes.
