Development of full-scale façade tests in ISO TC92
Department of Fire Safety Engineering, Lund University, Sweden
During the 90ies, ISO TC92 SC1 started the development of full-scale tests for facades based upon an international review. The work resulted in two standards namely ISO 13785 part 1 and part 2. The work was performed in WG7 and a substantial input from international experts was given. The paper gives a short historical update on the development but also includes a short overview of the major type of hazards or risks, which can be identified with respect to façades and how they relate to the façade test standards developed. Finally the two methods are summarised and reference to recent work is given.
