TF1 : open wood fire The laboratory is designed and equipped for experiments of the following types:
  • Fire tests in the incipient stage of a fire
  • Experiments concerning the distribution of smoke and gaseous products for variable conditions, e.g. incipient fires with and without thermal development
  • Test series with various standardized procedures
  • The laboratory is not determined as a test laboratory for routine checks. The equipment as well as the possibilities of varying the room geometry qualifies this laboratory for basic investigations.
  • Non-fire experiments with variable ventilation conditions or changeable room geometry.
