DuPont: Improved Fire Safety with the Help of m+p Coda

Titel Thermoman manikin in fire
“The world’s most advanced life-size thermal burn injury evaluation system.” – DuPont

We are proud to support our customer, DuPont, in the testing of Nomex®, a flame-resistant fiber used in protective clothing for firefighters, police officers, industrial workers and many others. m+p international supplies acquisition hardware and server systems with customized software based on m+p Coda for all of DuPont’s Thermo-Man® testing facilities, which are located in the United States (2), Switzerland, United Arab Emirates, Brazil and Singapore.

Thermo-Man® is a life-size mannequin, equipped with 122 heat sensors and used to simulate exposure to a sudden fire. To analyze the protective performance of Nomex®, Thermo-Man® is dressed in test garments and then engulfed into flames.

Dr. Roger Parry, principal investigator with DuPont, comments: “Your folks have done a great job converting our software requirements specification into an efficient GUI that addresses our specific needs. We look forward to continue working with m+p as we further refine the Thermo-Man® software package.”

Thanks to its modular structure and easy parameterization, m+p Coda has extensive application coverage:

  • Measurements and data analysis on test stands and test assemblies
  • Temperature measurements supporting all standard thermocouple types and RTDs
  • Performance and functional testing as well as condition monitoring of turbocompressors, turbines, jet and rocket engines, gearboxes and generators
  • Experimental structural testing, multi-axis strain and stress analysis
  • Process monitoring
  • Vibration monitoring during shaker tests
