Abstract

Ventilation conditions are a key parameter in predicting fire development and thereby the thermal loads on building structures in a fire. A broken window can radically change the ventilation conditions in a room, and the increased supply of oxygen can lead to a fiercer fire. This could prove critical for the building structure if not probably accounted for in the structural design. This poster highlights recent results from an ongoing research project at DTU and suggests a roadmap for future studies in pursuit of a better understanding of fire-induced glass breakage in modern windows.
