Abstract

Rate of heat release and ignitability indices are applied to predict the European fire classification based on FIGRA values from Single Burning Item (SBI) tests for building products. Both indices can be calculated from cone calorimeter test results measured at 50 kW/m2. Within its validated range, the predictive procedure gives the correct classification for 90% of the products studied. The model provides a practical tool to support product development and quality control.
