Title Fire hazard testing - Part 5-1: Corrosion damage effects of fire effluent - General guidance
Project Number 14823
Abstract/Scope Provides guidance on the following: a) general aspects of corrosion damage test methods; b) methods of measurement of corrosion damage; c) consideration of test methods; d) relevance of corrosion damage data to hazard assessment. The structure of this second edition remains essentially the same as the first edition with the following additions: - Information on fire scenarios and fire models has been added along with an update on the latest advances in the analysis of the fire effluent. - The general classification of fires from ISO TR 9122-1 has been added. - A new clause on the general aspects of the corrosivity of fire effluent which describes the types of corrosion damage effects and the factors affecting corrosivity. - A new clause on the principles of corrosion damage measurement has been added describing the assessment of the corrosive potential and the consideration of the corrosivity test methods. - A new table describing a summary of corrosion test methods. - A new flowchart detailing the evaluation and consideration of corrosion damage test methods. - The bibliography has been expanded. Has the status of a basic safety publication in accordance with IEC guide 104.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
