Title: Design Fires Database

Ref Code: AP156

Abstract1: The 'Characterisation of fire for design purposes' project was undertaken by BRE for DTLR. The aim was to obtain quantitative data on the growth rates of a number of realistic design fires; this data could then help fire safety engineers, designers and regulators design fire safety systems. The object was to establish a database of specific fire characteristics for at least 12 realistic fire scenarios; characteristics included heat release rates, smoke production rates, CO/CO2 ratios and gas concentration levels, with sprinklers both in and out of operation.
