Seminar on Fire Testing for SOLAS and Navy Vessels

Wednesday, September 14, 2011

A Seminar on Fire Testing for SOLAS and Navy Vessels: New Test Procedures and Material Approval Process will be held Wednesday, December 7, 2011. Sponsored by ASTM Committee F25 on Ships and Marine Technology, the workshop will be held at the Marriott Waterside Tampa in Tampa, Florida, in conjunction with the December standards development meetings of the committee.

 

Objective

 

ASTM F25 Committee presents a one day Seminar "Fire Testing for SOLAS and Navy Vessels: New Test Procedures and Material Approval Process." The seminar is targeted at the needs of those in industry with specific interest in fire testing and approval of materials for use in the construction of ships. Designers, manufacturers, suppliers, shipyards, and test laboratories will all benefit from attending the seminar.
 

Major revisions to the International Code for the Application of Fire Test Procedures (FTP Code) were approved by the International Maritime Organization in December 2010. The revisions become effective on 1 July 2012, and all approval tests after 30 June 2013 must be to the revised procedures. The FTP Code augments the requirements of the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) for fire safety on ships engaged in international trade. The FTP Code details the tests necessary to demonstrate compliance with the safety performance expectations for shipboard materials, furnishings, and fire divisions. This seminar provides detailed information on the major revisions to the FTP Code and includes presentations on test procedures, the approval process, Mutual Recognition Agreements, and FTP Code interpretations and optional tests. In addition, the latest Navy fire test requirements for N-Class structural divisions for Navy Vessels will be presented. There is also ample opportunity for questions and answers and discussion of related issues.
