Data Sources for Parameters Used in Predictive Modeling of Fire Growth and Smoke Spread.

Published

Author(s)

Daniel Gross

Abstract

Sources of data needed for predictive modeling of fire growth by FAST and ASET, two computer codes developed at the Center for Fire Research, are identified for a few selectd materials. Data includes thermophysical properties of compartment lining materials and burning rates and combustion product generation rates for typical combustible contents.
