Modelling of furniture experiments with zone models

Blomqvist, Jan and Andersson, Berit LU (1985) In LUTVDG/TVBB--3022--SE 3022.
Abstract
The Harvard Computer Fire Code Mark V has been used to simulate full-scale Furniture fires. Simulations were run with one sofa burning in the open and another burning in a small room. To obtain better agreement between experiment and simulation, changes were made in the code to include heating of the lower surfaces in the room. A simulation of a mattress test, conducted at NBS, is included. Comparison with a zone model using a different plume equation is also presented.
