Abstract:

Sources of data needed for predictive modeling of fire growth by FAST and ASET, two computer codes developed at the Center for Fire Research, are identified for a few selectd materials. Data includes thermophysical properties of compartment lining materials and burning rates and combustion product generation rates for typical combustible contents.
