IFRF was established in 1948 with the creation of an International Flame Radiation Research Committee. This later became the International Flame Research Foundation (IFRF) in 1955 as a co-operative between the UK, France and the Netherlands and was headquartered in IJmuiden, the Netherlands.
Since then IFRF has grown into a network with members in over 20 countries worldwide including Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Mexico, China, Poland, Sweden, the UK and USA.
The book ‘Spirit of IJmuiden, Fifty years of the IFRF, 1948-1998’ published by Roman Weber covers the various research themes conducted by IFRF.
2018 marked the 70th anniversary of IFRF and this was celebrated by a range of activities captured under the #IFRFAt70 banner. Click here to view the publications and activities from 2018.
