Fire Behaviour of Upholstered Furniture - An Experimental Study

Andersson, Berit LU and Magnusson, Sven Erik LU (1982) In LUTVDG/TVBB--3005--SE 3005.
Abstract
The first and largely experimental part of a research program on flammability characteristics of upholstered furniture has been completed with full-scale tests in an extensively instrumented

burn-out room as main element. The results indicate that fire response parameters vary within a large range with choice of filling, interlining and fabric material. Selection of performance criteria may cause difficulties, as parameters like heat release and smoke potential fluctuate strongly during

the fire process. A second part of the program will be directed towards measurement of heat release by oxygen consumption methods, more detailed smoke and gas analysis measurements and use of mathematical simulation procedures.
