Does anyone have or know where I can get some information on a rate of rise algorithm for a heat detector i.e. how does it determine when 8 degrees C per minute rate of rise has been exceeded. Also, where can I get some information on what the temperature does in a real fire e.g. if the temperature jumps by 15 degrees and then doesn't increase any further, can this happen in practice and would a rate of rise heat detector give an alarm for this.
Thanks in advance.
