The goal of VTT's research on fire growth has been a) to
develop methods for testing and ranking of linings,
furniture and other products, and b) to be able to
assess the contribution of these products to fire
development. Characteristic to our work has been to
concentrate on phenomenological 'thermal' models of fire
growth and to large-scale validation of these models.
Recently, fire growth modeling using CFD models has been
started, e.g. in co-operation with NIST. This paper will
review some of the key findings of the work during the
