Abstract [en]

In November 2014 a full scale fire test was conducted on an electric-diesel hybrid bus at the rescue-service training facility Guttasjön outside of Borås. The fire was started in the engine compartment and allowed to spread and grow until the entire bus was consumed in the fire. Temperature measurements were conducted in the engine compartment, passenger compartment, air-channels within the passenger compartment and on the battery. In addition were gas analysis, useful for evaluation of evacuation, performed within the passenger compartment and extra detectors installed in the engine compartment. The test was video-recorded from several angles. The purpose of the test and measurements were several; study the fire behaviour of an electric-hybrid bus, i.e. would the battery fall down into the passenger compartment and thus pose a new risk, or would the battery explode and pose a new risk, investigate the benefits of early detection of fires in the engine compartment and to provide a set of measuring data that can be used by researchers and others that are evaluating and modelling different fire safety means and rescue for buses.Key words: Fire, bus, hybrid, electric vehicle, battery, full-scale fire test
