Abstract

A set of computer tools was developed to assist fire protection engineers with the analysis of Cone calorimeter data for modeling. The tools consist of various MS Excel templates and macros. They can be used to determine material properties that are needed as input data for flame spread and fire growth modeling. This paper describes the physical basis for the calculations that are performed by the tools.
