AbstractFire data on temporal combustion characteristics that define design fires, such as heat release rates, temperatures, radiant heat flux, smoke and composition of fire gases for different fire scenarios are indispensible in carrying out fire safety engineering analysis and design of buildings. This paper presents results from a project that was conducted at the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) in order to characterize fires in multi-family residential dwellings and develop information on design fires. Such information is currently lacking for dwellings containing modern furniture.
