  1. 1. INTERMEDIATE-SCALE TESTS AND CONE CALORIMETER TESTS - FIRE BEHAVIOUR OF SELECTED FACADE MATERIALS

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Tanja Cernosa; [2020]
    Keywords : Fire behaviour; Intermediate-scale facade tests; cone calorimeter; stone wool; phenolic foam; WRB; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : In the last few years, the implementation of well-ventilated façades in buildings increased due to their improved energy performance. However, their double-wall construction due to the limited airflow within an air cavity represents a significant fire risk, since the flames that spread into the air cavity can elongate up to ten times.

  3. 3. The Influence of Cavity Widths and Lateral Ventilation Conditions on the Fire Behaviour within a Non-Combustible Ventilated Façade System

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Daniel Fogerty; [2020]
    Keywords : Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Present uncertainties in key ventilation parameters, characterising the fire performance of facades, has necessitated clarification in the foundational understanding of the Fire Science Body of Knowledge. A test program conducted in collaboration between Lunds Universitet and the Kingspan Group, studied the influence of cavity widths and lateral ventilation conditions on the fire behaviour within Intermediate-scale ventilated façades following the ISO 13785-1 standards.
