  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. 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

  3. 3. Quality assurance and the simulation of fires - A practical application for automated validation of user-generated input data for Fire Dynamics Simulator

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Kristoffer Hermansson; [2015]
    Keywords : FDS; Fire Dynamics Simulator; fire safety; fire simulation; quality assurance; automation; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : In order to systematize and rationalize the quality control process for FDS (Fire Dynamics Simulator) input data a software application for this specific purpose has been developed. In order to study the occurrence of user related errors in FDS input data and the possibility of reducing such errors by using the developed application, a case study on archived FDS input data from actual building projects has also been performed.
