This work uses three methods: hand calculations, a zone
model (CFAST), and a computational fluid dynamics code
(FDS), to examine two fire tests from the HDR facility,
a decommissioned reactor containment building in
Germany. The two tests, T51.23 and T52.14, used
different fuels, propane gas and a hydrocarbon solvent,
and occurred in two quite differeny locations, low in
the containment and just below the containment operating
