  1. 1. Experimental Fire Study of Expanded Polystyrene Insulation in Concrete and Lightweight Concrete Wall Constructions

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

    Author : Jacob Nellgård; [2017]
    Keywords : EPS; Expanded Polystyrene; Concrete; Lightweight Concrete; Vertical Firespread;

    Abstract : In today’s building industry creating and finding a cheaper and more efficient way of construction with the same standards is the primary goal. The necessity in testing the constructions in different scenarios is of highest interest, primarily in saving future lives but also in the residual value for the insurance point of view. READ MORE

    Abstract : The aim of the report was to investigate and compare the effect of horizontal projections along with different spandrel heights between the unprotected openings in the building facade. The effect was more specifically the effect on the risk level in regards to the external vertical fire spread. READ MORE

  4. 4. Incorporating Flame Spread and Fire Growth Algorithms into a Computational Zone Model

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik; Lunds universitet/Brandingenjörsprogrammet; Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Riskhantering och Samhällssäkerhet

    Author : Daniel Gojkovic; Hhultquist Hultquist; [1999]
    Keywords : flame spread; Zone model; WPI Fire Code; fire growth; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : A flame-spread model is incorporated into a zone model, the WPI/Fire Code. The external heat flux’s influence on the model is discussed and a tolerable value is calculated. The input parameters to the flame-spread algorithm are exposed to a simple sensitivity analysis. The algorithm is compared with two scenarios, Model A and Model B. READ MORE
