Does the heat release rate affect the outcome/severity of the event?

Does the heat release rate affect the outcome/severity of the event?

It’s necessary to analyse the heat release of the product concerned during its combustion and then evaluate its impact in one or more application in real scenarios. If the heat release is crucial for the fire development, it is necessary to characterize the conditions favouring it and then defining the tests that allow to simulate the propagation conditions. Normally a component that releases a large amount of heat in a short time has a great impact.
