AbstractThis paper describes full-scale experimental studies of heat flow to building facades cause by fires venting through window openings. The experiments were conducted using two burn facilities and two different fuels, namely wood cribs and propane gas. A mathematical model of heat flow to facades is described and its applicability is discussed in the light of the collected experimental data.
