Abstract [en] : A series of room fire tests for enclosures with different wall materials have been conducted for the purpose of supplying validation data for enclosure fire models. The wall materials are varied between light weight concrete, mineral wool insulation, bare 3 mm steel, and finally insulated steel. All tests used a propane gas burner with a well-defined mass flux as a fire source. Temperatures of thermocouples and plate thermometers were measured as well as oxygen concentrations in the opening. For some tests the heat release rate (by oxygen consumption calorimetry) as well as O2, CO2 and CO concentrations were measured in addition.This report describes the instrumentation, fire scenarios, enclosure materials, and results from all the tests. All results are readily available as spreadsheet data for downloading. The report also contains short description showing the influence of different factors such as wall materials, heat release rates and burner placements.
