Procedures for development and revision of codes and standards associated with fire safety in the USA

15-Jun-2017 | Marcelo M. Hirschler, Fire and Materials, 2017

Summary The process of codes and standards development, and subsequent regulation, in the USA is very different from that in most other countries: it is managed by private (not‐for‐profit) companies and is via a consensus process. With regards to codes, primary code development occurs through ...


Revisions to FM Global Property Loss Prevention Data Sheet 7‐14, Fire Protection for Chemical Plants

10-Nov-2016 | Matthew Daelhousen, Henry L. Febo, Process Safety Progress, 2016

For nearly two centuries, businesses around the world have relied on FM Global and its property loss prevention data sheets to reduce risk at their facilities. Data Sheet 7‐14, Fire Protection for Chemical Plants, addresses fire and explosion hazards at chemical manufacturing plants and similar ...


School egress data: comparing the configuration and validation of five egress modelling tools

10-Oct-2016 | Arturo Cuesta, Enrico Ronchi, Steven M. V. Gwynne, Michael J. Kinsey, Aoife L. E. Hunt, Daniel Alvear, Fire and Materials, 2016

Summary Data were collected between 2011 and 2014 from five evacuations involving the same school buildings located in Spain. Children from 6 to 16 years of age were observed during the evacuation exercises. Background information was collected on key factors deemed to influence evacuation ...


A theoretical model for quantifying expansion of intumescent coating under different heating conditions

30-Mar-2016 | Burak Kaan Cirpici, Y.C. Wang, B.D. Rogers, S. Bourbigot, Polymer Engineering and Science, 2016

This article presents an analytical method to calculate the expansion of intumescent coatings under different heating and fire conditions, being the most critical step in quantifying their fire protection performance under different conditions. The proposed method extends that of Amon and ...


Determination of critical heat transfer for the prediction of materials damages during a flame engulfment test

30-Mar-2016 | Michel Schmid, Simon Annaheim, Martin Camenzind, René M. Rossi, Fire and Materials, 2016

Summary The personal protective equipment of workers exposed to heat can consist of materials with a relatively low melting point of approximately 250°C (membranes, zippers, and underwear). In particular, users of heat protective clothing (such as volunteer firefighters or industrial workers) ...


Effect of boron compounds on fire protection properties of epoxy based intumescent coating

11-Mar-2016 | S. Murat Unlu, Umit Tayfun, Bekir Yildirim, Mehmet Dogan, Fire and Materials, 2016

Summary The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of boron compounds on fire protection properties of intumescent coating based on ammonium polyphosphate (APP). Three kinds of boron compounds namely boric acid (BA), zinc borate (ZB) and melamine borate (MB) were used. Total amount of ...


Materials, Vol. 8, Pages 6096-6104: Behaviour of Passive Fire Protection K-Geopolymer under Successive Severe Fire Incidents

11-Sep-2015 | Sakkas, Konstantinos ; Sofianos, Alexandros ; Nomikos, Pavlos ; Panias, Dimitrios, Materials, 2015

The performance of a fire resistant coating for tunnel passive fire protection under successive severe thermal loading is presented. The material falls under the class of potassium based geopolymers (K-geopolymer) and was prepared by mixing ferronickel (FeNi) slag, doped with pure alumina, with a ...


Sustainability, Vol. 7, Pages 11190-11212: Scaled Experimental Study on Maximum Smoke Temperature along Corridors Subject to Room Fires

14-Aug-2015 | Xing, Zheli ; Mao, Jinfeng ; Huang, Yuliang ; Zhou, Jin ; Mao, Wei ; Deng, Feifan, Sustainability, 2015

In room–corridor building geometry, the corridor smoke temperature is of great importance to fire protection engineering as indoor fires occur. Theoretical analysis and a set of reduced-scale model experiments were performed, and a virtual fire model was proposed, to investigate the correlations ...


Materials, Vol. 8, Pages 5216-5237: The Effects of Thermophysical Properties and Environmental Conditions on Fire Performance of Intumescent Coatings on Glass Fibre-Reinforced Epoxy Composites

11-Aug-2015 | Kandola, Baljinder K.; Luangtriratana, Piyanuch ; Duquesne, Sophie ; Bourbigot, Serge, Materials, 2015

Intumescent coatings are commonly used as passive fire protection systems for steel structures. The purpose of this work is to explore whether these can also be used effectively on glass fibre-reinforced epoxy (GRE) composites, considering the flammability of the composites compared to ...
