AbstractThis report presents the results of experiments to study room fire behaviour beyond flashover. Seven room-scale fire experiments were conducted in simulated retail settings with the following products: computers, clothing, toys, shoes, books and cooking products (fast food restaurants). The tests measured peak heat release rates, and the rate of fire growth as a result of differences in the ignitability and flame spread behaviour of the different test materials.
