    Abstract

    A procedure for modelling composite material for fire simulations was developed, and is demonstrated in this paper using experimental and simulation results of a furan- glass fibre composite. The models are validated using larger scale experimental results. The results show that the thermal response at the backside of the material can be predicted very accurately. Modelling flame spread and temperatures near the flames is more challenging, but the results are still quite reasonable.
