Room Fires and Combustible Linings

Abstract
An extensive research program on combustible wall lining materials has been carried out in Sweden. Several lining materials were tested in full scale room tests and 1/3 scale model room tests for two different scenarios, A and B. Scenario A refers to the case where walls and ceiling are covered by the lining material, scenario B where lining materials are mounted on walls only. A model is presented using material properties derived from standardized bench-scale tests as input data. The model predicts the fire growth in the full or 1/3 scale tests, which includes predicting the rate of heat release, gastemperatures, radiation to walls, wall surface temperatures and downward flame spread on the wall lining material.
