  • 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 ...
  • Characterisation of Dalmarnock Fire Test One 

    Abecassis Empis, Cecilia; Reszka, Pedro; Steinhaus, Thomas; Cowlard, Adam; Biteau, Hubert; Welch, Stephen; Rein, Guillermo; Torero, Jose L (Elsevier, Journal Experimental Thermal and Fluid Science, 2008)
    The Dalmarnock Tests comprise a set of fire experiments conducted in a real high-rise building in July 2006. The two main tests took place in identical flats, Test One allowing the fire to develop freely to post-flashover ...
  • Characterisation of the Thermal and Chemical Effects of Energetic Materials not Likely to Detonate 

    Biteau, Hubert; Marlair, Guy; Drysdale, Dougal; Torero, Jose L (The Combustion Institute, 2006-08-06)
    Energetic materials encompass a wide range of chemical compounds all associated with a significant risk of fire and explosion. They include explosives, pyrotechnic materials, powders, fertilizers and other unsteady chemicals. ...
  • A Study of Fire Durability for a Road Tunnel: Comparing CFD and Simple Analytical Models 

    Reszka, Pedro; Steinhaus, Thomas; Biteau, Hubert; Carvel, Ricky O; Rein, Guillermo; Torero, Jose L (ECCOMAS, J. Eberhardsteiner et.al. (eds.), 2008-08)
    The durability of various typical tunnel sections in the event of a prescribed 100 MW fire has been assessed. Cast-iron sections, pre-cast concrete sections and in-situ concrete cut and cover sections are all considered ...
