National Fire Research Laboratory Group

Welcome

The National Fire Research Laboratory group develops, advances, and deploys measurement science to characterize the real-scale fire behavior of combustibles, and the fire performance of structures under realistic fire and structural loading.  Carries out mission-related measurement science research and services to improve fire performance of communities, structures and building contents; develop physics-based models that predict fire behavior and structural performance; and conduct disaster and failure studies to reduce risk of fire hazards to structures and fire fighters.
