DEVELOPMENT OF AIRCRAFT LAVATORY COMPARTMENTS WITH IMPROVED FIRE RESISTANCE CHARACTERISTICS, PHASE 1: FIRE CONTAINMENT TEST OF A WIDE BODY AIRCRAFT LAVATORY MODULE

A test was conducted to evaluate the fire containment characteristics of a Boeing 747 lavatory module. Results showed that the fire was contained within the lavatory during the 30-minute test period with the door closed. The resistance of the lavatory wall and ceiling panels and general lavatory construction to burn-through under the test conditions was demonstrated.
