Prediction of the Material Behavior under Fire Conditions

For safety reasons, it is very important to know the behavior of supposedly non-combustible materials under fire conditions: What happens with the building material? How durable are the building constructions? We show how to use the Kinetics Neo software to predict the material behavior under fire conditions.

Warum NETZSCH-Wärmefluss-Messapparaturen zur Reduzierung von C02 Emissionen beitragen

NETZSCH Thermal Conductivity HFM Eco Line

Regierungen haben strenge Vorschriften erlassen, um den Ausstoß von Kohlenstoff zu reduzieren. Daher wird viel Aufwand in die Entwicklung von Materialien mit sehr niedriger Wärmeleitfähigkeit investiert, um den Markt mit noch besseren Wärmedämmstoffen zu versorgen. Machen Sie sich ein Bild davon, wie die NETZSCH HFM 446 Lambda Eco-Reihe die genaue und schnelle Bestimmung der Wärmeleitfähigkeit und des thermischen Widerstands ermöglicht!

Why NETZSCH Heat Flow Meters Support Reduction of C02 Emissions

NETZSCH Thermal Conductivity HFM Eco Line

Governments set strict building insulation regulations in place to reduce carbon emissions. Consequently, a lot of effort goes into the engineering of materials with very low thermal conductivity to supply the market with even better thermal insulation materials. Learn how the NETZSCH HFM 446 Lambda Eco-Line allows accurate and fast determination of thermal conductivity and thermal resistance!

Assessing Fire Hazard of Cladding Materials in Existing Buildings

Fire cladding materials testing

The University of Queensland, in collaboration with the Non-Conforming Building Products (NCBP) Audit Taskforce in Queensland, Australia, have proposed a framework to provide a robust methodology to assess the fire hazard of cladding materials in existing buildings based on a thorough understanding of the relevant fire phenomena. Thermogravimetric Analysis enhances the robustness of the framework. Read here how the method is applied to evaluate the risk of external fire spread on buildings.
