Evaluation of Fire Models for Nuclear Power Plant Applications: Benchmark Exercise #3

Published

Author(s)

Kevin B. McGrattan

Abstract

A series of full-scale fire experiments was conducted at NIST in 2003 to provide data for an international benchmarking exercise to validate fire models over a range of operating conditions expected within a variety of compartments in a nuclear power plant. Seven organizations from France, Germany, Britain, and USA exercised seven fire models as part of the International Collaborative Fire Modeling Project (ICFMP). This report documents the results of the individual modeling studies.
