Abstract

A series of burning tests were conducted on motor scooters by using a 10 MW large-scale fire products collector. The emissions characteristics and heat release rates of burning motor scooters were identified. From the experimental measurements, it was found that one motor scooter had a peak heat release rate of 1 MW, furthermore two scooters and three scooters had 2 MW and 4 MW peak heat release rate respectively. As the number of scooters increased, the duration of the fully-developed burning period became shorter. However, the ignition and fire spreading patterns affected the maximal heat release rate considerably.
