Fire curves. The standard fire curve, also referred to as the ISO834 curve is a standard fire curve used internationally for fire resistance testing of components. This allows for a direct comparison between standard fire tests of components rather than giving an indication of how long the component will survive in the fire.What is the fire behavior in a structure curve?
The Fire Behavior in a Structure curve demonstrates the time history of a ventilation limited fire. In this case the fire starts in a structure which has the doors and windows closed.What is the parametric fire curve?
A highly recommended fire curve to adopt is that of the parametric fire curve as outlined in Annex A of EC1-1-2. The parametric fire curve unlike a nominal fire curve reaches a post flash-over phase where the fire-load density is completely burned-out and a cooling phase occurs contributed by the ventilation.What is the Standard Time-temperature curve?
The standard time-temperature curve can be used for all fire design scenarios. The standard fire curve, also referred to as the ISO834 curve is a standard fire curve used internationally for fire resistance testing of components.
