  • Calculation Methods for the Heat Release Rate of Materials of Unknown Composition 

    Biteau, Hubert; Steinhaus, Thomas; Simeoni, Albert; Schemel, Christopher; Marlair, Guy; Bal, Nicolas; Torero, Jose L (International Association for Fire Safety Science, 2008-09)
    The Heat Release Rate (HRR) is a critical parameter to characterise a fire. Different methods have been developed to estimate it. The most widespread techniques are based on mass balance. If the heat of combustion of the ...
  • Uncertainty and complexity in pyrolysis modelling 

    Bal, Nicolas (The University of Edinburgh, 2012-10)
    The use of numerical tools in fire safety engineering became usual nowadays and this tendency is expected to increase with the evolution of performance based design. Despite the constant development of fire modelling ...
