This presentation, describing the full scale test facility built by DLR and the first
tests performed using it, was given by UoG for GMAv at the FAA International Fire & Cabin
Safety Research Conference, November 1998, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA.

[pdf file, 154KB].
slides: The FIREDASS (FIRE Detection And Suppression
Simulation) Model [GIF files, 40 slides].
This paper, and the conference slides of it, describe the FIREDASS project and its
aims. It was presented by UoG at the FAA International Fire & Cabin Safety Research Conference, November
1998, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA.
The following presentations and contributions, based on the work done during the
FIREDASS project, were also made:
A presentation on the FIREDASS programme was given by GMAv at the Industrial and
Materials Technologies Conference, October 1997.
A presentation on the FIREDASS programme was given by Cerberus at the November 1997
meeting of the International Halon Replacement Working Group (IHRWG).
The suppression submodel implemented in the FIREDASS model was presented by SINTEF at
the Halon Options Technical Working Conference, HOTWC 98, in May 1998 at Albuquerque, New
Mexico, USA. Ref: Ragnar Wighus, "An Empirical Model for Extinguishment of Enclosed
Fires with Water Mist".
Comments were supplied by GMAv for the July 1998 meeting of the IHRWG concerning the
generation of a Minimum Performance Standard (MPS) for Halon replacement systems.
A poster on the two phase radiation submodel developed for the FIREDASS model was
presented by NTUA at the International Association of Fire Safety Science (IAFSS) 6th
International Symposium, July 1999, Poiters, France. Ref: E.P. Keramida, A.G. Boudouvis,
N.C. Markatos, R.N. Mawhinney, A.J. Grandison, E.R. Galea and M.K. Patel, "The
