Abstract
The Cone Calorimeter is a widely used advanced reaction to fire test, where a material’s fire properties is determined from test parameters such as time-toignition

and heat release. The Cone Calorimeter has further a role in flame spread modelling, where data from the small-scale test can be used as input to models, or alternatively, the test can be used for validation purposes. In such cases, however, it is important to define what the small-scale results actually represent in order for an accurate translation of the burning behaviour in the small-scale tests to real fire conditions. In this paper we have thoroughly analysed the results from Cone Calorimeter tests with PMMA and two cellulose products, performed both in nitrogen... (More)
The Cone Calorimeter is a widely used advanced reaction to fire test, where a material’s fire properties is determined from test parameters such as time-toignition

The Cone Calorimeter has further a role in flame spread modelling, where data from the small-scale test can be used as input to models, or alternatively, the test can be used for validation purposes. In such cases, however, it is important to define what the small-scale results actually represent in order for an accurate translation of the burning behaviour in the small-scale tests to real fire conditions. In this paper we have thoroughly analysed the results from Cone Calorimeter tests with PMMA and two cellulose products, performed both in nitrogen atmosphere and in air. From the results conclusions can be drawn on combustion related parameters such as L (the effective heat of gasification) and ΔHc (the heat of combustion). Further, the magnitude of the irradiance from the flame in the test method is analysed

by several methods. (Less)
