Data from localized fire experiment

Data from a large scale experiment on steel column exposed to pool fire is available for downloading.

In December 2011 SP Fire Technology conducted experiments on a large scale steel column exposed to various pool fires. The experimental data can be downloaded as a spreadsheet. Detailed explanation of the tests and how to read the data is given in “HowToReadTheData”. See link to the right. The project was financed by the the Swedish Fire Research Board.
