Abstract [en]

Virtual fire testing could serve to improve the cost-efficiency of developing new composite materials for transport sector applications. Here, we present a simulation framework for the fire-response of polymer matrix composites, based on sequential and one-directional coupling of existing software tools. The open-source code Fire Dynamics Simulator is used to model the fire environment, including the heating and thermal decomposition of involved materials. The fire simulation is coupled with a finite element analysis, which is used to model the degradation of material properties, as well as the consequent reduction in load-bearing capacity and the actual mechanical response. The supported finite element analysis software include ABAQUS and ANSYS. Besides enabling virtual fire testing, the framework is suitable for larger scale simulations of onboard fires in e.g. aircraft, trains and ships.
