Title: Reaction to fire of construction products
Subtitle: Area B. Fire modelling

Ref Code: EP38
Authors: G Cox, M Curtat, C di Blasi and M Kokkala

Abstract1: This study aims to assess the potential of using scientific knowledge, physical models and software in ‘fire engineering’, and how this scientific knowledge can be used to classify construction products with respect to their hazards for people in fire situations. The first stage reviews the modelling methodology by presenting the following approaches to modelling: CFD-modelling, zone modelling and test-based modelling. Hazards from fire for people were also assessed. This study recommends research on reaction to fire of construction products.
