Characterization of Soot from Fires in Laboratory Controlled Environments


During a testing campaign of 20 days, various products as cables, plastics, electrical cards, magnetic coil etc have been tested for characterization of the soot yield, particle matter, heat release rate etc. The campaign is financed and led by CERN to determine emissions from fires from the current facility but also as a pre-study for fire analysis of the Future Circular Collider, FCC. The FCC will bring research further than the world’s now most powerful particle accelerator, the  Large Hadron Collider where for instance the Higgs particle was determined. Being a part of this base research is a stimulating and prestigious project for the involved divisions of Fire Safety Engineering and Aerosol Technology at Lund University.
