  1. 1. Temperature distribution in air tight cavities of steel framed modular buildings when exposed to fire

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för samhällsbyggnad och naturresurser; Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för samhällsbyggnad och naturresurser

    Author : Elin Bergroth; Greta Torstensson; [2019]
    Keywords : Cavities; fire furnace; fire test; modular building; steel; TASEF; Brandugn; brandtest; hålrum; modulbyggnader; stål; TASEF;

    Abstract : A common way to construct large buildings is by assemble prefabricated modules around a load bearing steel construction. However, if a fire occurs these buildings can be subject to a rapid fire spread due to its cellular nature. READ MORE

  2. 2. Temperature distribution and charring penetrations in timber assemblies exposed to parametric fire curves : Comparisons between tests and TASEF predictions

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Byggkonstruktion och brand; Luleå tekniska universitet/Byggkonstruktion och brand

    Author : Isac Andersson; Niklas Ek; [2017]
    Keywords : TASEF; Delamination; Timber beams; Parametric fire curves; Fire tests; Charring; Eurocode; TASEF; Delaminering; Träbalkar; Parametriska brandkurvor; Brandtester; Förkolning; Eurocode;

    Abstract : Four furnace tests have been performed using two different parametric fire curves and the results are compared with computer simulations and Eurocode calculations. What differentiates the parametric fire curve from other fire curves is in particular the cooling phase, something that has proven to be hard to model for timber structures. READ MORE

  3. 3. The impact of fire development on design resistance of structures

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Byggkonstruktion och brand; Luleå tekniska universitet/Byggkonstruktion och brand

    Author : Catrin Eberius; Kristin Fjällström; [2017]
    Keywords : Large compartments; temperature- time curves; travelling fires; simplified fire models; fire development;

    Abstract : The current design methods used to determine fire progression and temperature-time development in fire compartments today are being questioned to not give accurate results in large and complex enclosures (larger than 500 m2). The established design methods proposed by Eurocode and used by fire safety engineers today are primarily the standard temperature-time curve and the parametric temperature-time curves. READ MORE

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Byggkonstruktion och brand; Luleå tekniska universitet/Byggkonstruktion och brand

    Author : Niklas Ek; Isac Andersson; [2017]
    Keywords : Fire; Delamination; Parametric fire curve; TASEF; Eurocode; Timber; Brand; Delaminering; Parametrisk brandkurva; TASEF; Eurocode; Trä;

    Abstract : Four furnace tests have been performed using two different parametric fire curves and the results are compared with computer simulations and Eurocode calculations. What differentiates the parametric fire curve from other fire curves is in particular the cooling phase, something that has proven to be hard to model for timber structures. READ MORE
