Short communication: An overview of the findings of the Combustion Behaviour of Upholstered Furniture project
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
This paper gives an overview of the Combustion Behaviour of Upholstered Furniture (CBUF) project. The work described is the collective effort of 11 CBUF partners, laboratories, universities, industries, in eight countries. It became possible to do this research thanks to the European Commission's interest in the burning behaviour of upholstered furniture and their willingness to sponsor this effort. The opportunity to work with many of the most prominent fire researchers and furniture experts has been extremely rewarding. All the expertise of these scientists has resulted in many research results that are presented here. The article only gives the main findings and conclusions of the project, namely the presentation of the fire safety design procedure of the CBUF project. Other articles will deal with specific modelling topics and an extensive description of the project can be found in the final CBUF report EUR 16477 EN.
