Abstract

Several key points for consideration of fire safety in local buses are discussed. Materials fire safety, bus fire scenarios, and the heat release rate from a fully burning bus are studied. Smoke filling process for a typical double-deck bus with a seating fire was simulated using the two-layer fire zone model CFAST. Finally, fire protection goals are proposed.
