The complex behaviour of composite materials is an interesting challenge to accurate modelling of their response to fire. Important phenomena include resin decomposition, with its associated volatile evolution as well as non-ideal transport properties of the constituents, most notably carbon fibre. There is a general lack of useful information on these properties. This paper will discuss modelling issues and describe how high quality information can be obtained from small-scale, relatively low cost tests.
