    Abstract

    Evacuation safety of passenger trains has been studied as a part of the TRANSFEU (Transport Fire Safety Engineering in the European Union) project [1]. The main objective of the project was to develop a fire-safe, performance-based design methodology to efficiently support the standardisation of European surface transport, including trains, ships and buses. In particular, TRANSFEU investigated the toxicity effects of fire effluents generated under dynamic conditions on passengers and crew in railway applications.
