Validation Of CFD Simulation Model Of French Balcony Façade Fire Test With Parapet Glass

Csaba Szikra – Budapest University of Technology and Economics


We have carried out numerous CFD modelling of full-scale elevation fire propagation tests during the recent years. In Europe, there is no unified full-scale elevation fire propagation test so Hungary could maintain an own test standard using a full-scale façade model with windows. In this paper, following the validation of the CFD model of the Hungarian test method is introduced, we have modified our model with French balconies using certified building product called Pyroswiss® Parapet glass railing and finally, the validation of the modified model is introduced.
