Sammanfattning

Fires in nuclear power plants can be an important hazard for the overall safety of the facility. One of the typical fire sources is a pool fire. It is therefore important to have good knowledge on the fire behaviour of pool fire and be able to predict the heat release rate by prediction of the mass loss rate. This final report describes the state of the art within the area of pool fire modelling and the need for further development of pool fire models. As a result of the research in this project two new models are presented: one pyrolysis model and one engineering model. In the project the models were validated and pool fire experiments were included. Also a number of real case studies were incorporated to show the need for the development of pool fire models.
