  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.

  2. 2. Burning material behaviour in hypoxic environments: An experimental study examining fire dynamics of composite materials in vitiated conditions

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Robert Bray; [2020]
    Keywords : ORS; Fire engineering; hypoxic; polymers; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The progression of fire safety research has contributed to improving the guiding principles of standardised building design. Research making use of pure materials, once common in homes and workplaces, are less relevant as such materials are no longer as prevalent. READ MORE

  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.

  4. 4. Gallringens effekter på botten- och fältskikt i grandominerad produktionsskog : en studie av hur störning kan påverka β-diversitet i Norrland och Svealand

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Wildlife, Fish and Environmental Studies

    Author : William Jaktén Langert; Andreas Widell; [2020]
    Keywords : biodiversitet; bottenskikt; fältskikt; störning; gallring; boreal skog;

    Abstract : Den boreala skogens beståndsstruktur har historiskt primärt präglats av brand, vilket skapat en flerskiktad beståndsstruktur. Störning är därför en avgörande faktor för artmångfald i dessa ekosystem. READ MORE

  5. 5. Smart Environment - Early Wildfire Detection using IoT

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för elektro- och informationsteknik

    Author : Carl Hidestål; André Zreik; [2020]
    Keywords : Internet of Things; Wildfire; Forest fire; Narrowband-IoT; Particle detection; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Problems with extreme weather, such as drought, has increased due to greenhouse emissions. As one of the consequences to this, forest fires have emerged more frequently on a global level. This became obvious in Sweden, in the summer of 2018, which has been stated to have been the worst affected year of forest fires in modern time. READ MORE
