Developing of efficient and fossil free fire test methods and assessment protocols for the fire resistance of construction elements.

Objective

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Green Charter guides all the researchers and the academic community to work towards a greener and better future. Therefore, the current action is appropriate and timely as it is primarily dependent on the reduction of the excessive amount of carbon footprints, generated through the huge number of fossil-based experiments conducted to observe the suitability of structural materials for different applications and denoting fire-ratings. The project will focus on introducing fossil-free electric heating (inductive/resistive) for different structural materials and compare the results to the established fossil-based ones. The aim being to prove that fossil-free methods can also help in providing the required information on different structural materials, resulting in possible standardisation of the same. Acceptance and proper functioning of the method will substantially help in reducing the use of fossils, specifically propane, and in working towards a more sustainable environment. Furthermore, the process will also enable in providing a portable and economical way for research institutes and universities to conduct large-scale experiments on new structural materials. The action will also involve the specification of a method to achieve optimal desired fire-safety in materials, and a renewable wood-based structural composite material that has good mechanical and fire performances. The successful preparation, testing and analysis of the new structural material will further enable the team to file a patent. Additionally, the same material will be used to prepare corrugated and honeycomb sandwiched structures with numerical modelling, that for the first time will capture the influence of the cell sizes on the flammability of the structure.
