This page shows details on the project. The primary projects are displayed together with a list of sub-projects.

Project description:The size of a fire is directly proportional to the time elapsed from ignition and conditions of fire development. One of the conditions, increasing fire development, is the presence of combustibles which are prone to ignition and support flame spread and heat release. These include also natural materials which are currently being used increasingly as environmental-friendly thermal insulation in timber frame buildings, but also in traditional construction. The behaviour of these materials in fire is not well defined since they are novel without a history of use. Further aspect of these materials is the fact that they are usually used in combination with other materials, which affects the overall development of fire and may cause difficulties in fire-fighting operations. One of the possible solutions is to rate the fire resistance of the whole panel as required by the standards.
