Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRPs) continue to grow in popularity as building materials while manufacturers continue to develop methods to improve their flame-resistant performance. Cone calorimeter tests can be implemented to cost-effectively analyze the performance of new flame resistant FRPs. Computer models such as G-Pyro have been developed to simulate combustion reactions. This offers the potential to simulate the effects of different additives or treatments on a given material at without costly lab tests. Through analysis of laboratory test results and computer generated test results, this project evaluated the effectiveness of new flame-retardant FRPs as well as the feasibility of pyrolysis computer modeling in commercial research and development applications.
