Fire safety and green buildings

Analysis of published research into fire safety and sustainable construction shows interest in insulation materials and timber, as well as smoke, fire emissions and indoor air quality. 2013 published articles were identified and analysed, showing that three of the four most cited articles (640, 280, 115 citations) concern insulating materials, and one smoke toxicity (128). The country producing the highest number of articles is the USA, targeting energy efficiency, fire resistance and chemical properties of insulation materials. As well as insulation materials, structural building materials including timber and wood, and smoke are the two other areas of high research interest.
