Modelling of Euroclass Test Results by Means of the Cone Calorimeter

Van Hees, Patrick LU and Axelsson, Jesper (2007) In Multifunctional Barriers for Flexible Structure 97. p.215-226
Abstract
An important part of introduction of the construction productive directive (CPD) is the introduction of the so-called Euroclasses for building products. The Euroclasses define the different fire classes within the European harmonised system. The major fire test method in this system for wall and ceiling linings, the so-called SBI test (EN 13823), is, however, an intermediate fire test and requires larger test specimens. This makes it difficult for industry to develop new innovative materials as large amounts of samples are necessary to run the test, which is also more cost expensive. In this chapter, a product development tool for this method will be discussed. The product development tool is a simulation model based on small-scale test... (More)
An important part of introduction of the construction productive directive (CPD) is the introduction of the so-called Euroclasses for building products. The Euroclasses define the different fire classes within the European harmonised system. The major fire test method in this system for wall and ceiling linings, the so-called SBI test (EN 13823), is, however, an intermediate fire test and requires larger test specimens. This makes it difficult for industry to develop new innovative materials as large amounts of samples are necessary to run the test, which is also more cost expensive. In this chapter, a product development tool for this method will be discussed. The product development tool is a simulation model based on small-scale test data obtained in the cone calorimeter tests. First the model will be explained in this chapter. The next step is to show the validation of the model and give guidance on how to use the model for building materials. (Less)
