FIRE DYNAMICS IN FAÇADE FIRE TESTS, Measurement, modeling and repeatability

Johan Anderson, Lars Boström, Robert Jansson, Bojan Milovanović

Abstract


Presented is a comparison between full-scale façade tests where SP Fire 105 and BS 8414-1 were used regarding repeatability and the use of modelling to discern changes in the set-ups. Results show that the air movements around the test set-up (the wind) may have a significant impact on the tests and that the heat exposure to the façade surface will among other depend on the thickness of the test specimen. Also demonstrated was that good results could be obtained by modelling of the façade fire tests giving us the opportunity to use these methods to determine the effect of a change in the experimental setup.
