The Symposium presented the results of some large scale fire tests which were carried out in a disused tower block in Dalmarnock, Glasgow in July 2006.
The experiments were designed to investigate compartment fire phenomena, demonstrate the FireGrid concept, test fire sensors & cameras and provide the most detailed set of experimental data ever recorded for comparison with fire modelling studies.
Proceedings: A 220 page book describing the experiments and modelling in detail was produced for the event. The book is available to purchase online and the 'links' below lead
to summaries and full PDF versions of each of the chapters, filed in the Edinburgh Research Archive.
