Computational strategies in flame-spread modelling involving wooden surfaces

Research output: ThesisLicentiate Thesis

Abstract

Various approaches to flame-spread and fire-growth modelling are discussed and are evaluated using experimental results from different tests. Use of Computational Fluid Dynamics, CFD, in fire modelling is discussed and the performance of different CFD codes in wall flow modelling is analysed. Different pyrolysis models are discussed with respect to their major assumptions and the input data required.
