CHOIX DES MATERIAUX A L'EGARD DE LEUR TENUE AU FEU DANS LE DOMAINE DU MATERIEL ROULANT

After recalling the basic definitions concerning the fire-resistant qualities of materials, the authors explain the purpose, limits and interpretation of fire tests. They examine the rules that decided the SNCF to apply certain types of tests and describe the main methods used. They consider the difficulties involved when studying the toxicity of fumes and give, as an example, some of the choices made for modern coaching stock.
