In this study, the double seats in the compartments of CRH1 high-speed trains were used as the main research object. A
limited number full-scale furniture calorimeter tests were conducted to study the combustion behavior characteristics of
these seats. Through discussion and analysis of these tests, the following indications of double seat performance in train
carriages can be drawn: the combustion characteristics of high-speed train double seats depend on the ignition power, ventilation rate, and other factors of fire ground environment; the ignition time appears to be mainly determined by the double seat surface material and ignition power. The combustion duration of double seats is in the range 18–26 min based on these specific test conditions.
