The project gathers the leading European railway manufacturers, railway operators, research organisations and standardization bodies with their interdisciplinary expertise across Europe. More precisely, the expected results are:
New generation of realistic dynamic measurement methodology of the emission of toxic fumes in case of fire
Cost-effective methods and modelling tools for fire safety design able to predict realistic fire behaviour and the time to reach critical conditions within passenger rail vehicles. Simulation tools will provide fire guidance on the design, on fire safety measures and a way to explore alternative designs
Validation of the new fire safety methods and tools in railway scenarios and of the toxic fire effluents classification criteria from products used on trains
Significant contribution to future fire safety standards for all means of surface transport.
