The evacuation certification trial is an aviation benchmark, requiring that all the passengers must safely evacuate from an aircraft within 90 seconds, through 50% of the available exits. Prof. Ed Galea will present his research into aircraft fire safety, considering factors such as human behaviour, fuel flashover data and available exits, and ask whether the certification testing is really good enough?
