Title: Reaction to fire of construction products
Subtitle: Area A. Test methods

Ref Code: EP37
Authors: P Vandevelde, P Van Hees, L Twilt, R J M van Mierlo and P H E van de Leur

Abstract1: This sets a framework for a classification system for reaction to fire, based on characteristic material parameters. Proposed reference situations are reviewed and related to hazards. Subsequently the major fire phenomena are identified, and their relevance for each fire scenario discussed. A review of large-scale test data is given for each scenario. ISO and national test methods used in the EU are discussed and assessed. The study recommends research to develop a classification scheme for the reaction to fire behaviour of construction products subjected to different fire scenarios.
