DAYTON AIRCRAFT CABIN FIRE MODEL. VOLUME II. LABORATORY TEST PROGRAM
A basic mathematical model and computer simulation program have been developed to assess the smoke and toxic gas emissions resulting from the burning of cabin interior materials of a wide-body transport aircraft in a full-scale cabin fire. The simulation is based on laboratory test data on the cabin materials. This report presents the results of a laboratory test program which was conducted in support of the model development. Various flammability and combustion toxicity properties were measured for several wide-body cabin materials by The Boeing Commercial Airplane Company under a subcontract to the University of Dayton Research Institute. The measurements were made using the OSU Combustion Analyzer, the NBS Smoke Chamber, and the Boeing Burn-Through Apparatus. This report describes the test procedures, the test results, the analysis of the test data, and the development of a set of material properties input data for the cabin fire simulation program. This report consists of three volumes; Volume I is entitled 'Basic Mathematical Model' and Volume III is entitiled 'Computer Program User's Guide.' (Author)
