Fire properties of materials and elements

We verify the safety of energy-efficient buildings in case of fire. We simulate and experimentally verify the behavior of structural elements in small-scale and large-scale tests in our or partner facilities.


We model the thermal degradation and combustion of wood-based panel materials
