Have you add the location of the data base in the MIST line ?? To avoid a data base, which may not be the best solution when you want to modify your material at each run, I put the material directely in the main project as:

&MISC SURF_DEFAULT='BETON',REACTION='POLYSTYRENE',NFRAME S=1200,DTCORE=10.,TMPA=20.0,U0=0.21 /

&SURF ID = 'SHEET METAL'

ALPHA=5.20E-5

KS=55.0

DELTA=0.01

BACKING = 'INSULATED' /

&SURF ID='FIRE BRICK'

ALPHA=2.25E-7

KS=0.1

DELTA=0.01

BACKING = 'INSULATED' /

&SURF ID = 'BETON'

FYI = 'Quintiere, Fire Behavior'

ALPHA = 8.4E-7

KS = 1.5

DELTA = 0.2 /

&REAC ID='POLYSTYRENE'

FYI='Styrene, C_8 H_8'

MW_FUEL=104.

NU_O2=10.

NU_H2O=4.

NU_CO2=8.

SOOT_YIELD=0.164

CO_YIELD=0.06

RADIATIVE_FRACTION=0.45 /

&SURF ID='FIRE1'...........etc

Thank you very much, i've tried it and i've got good results.

I'd like to make another question about the program, Is it possible to see the degradation of the material? or see how the flame pierces it?

thank you in advance

no that's not possible !

You can see the fire spreading without prescribing the HRRPUA (page 24 of the user manual) but the objects in your domaine are staying as they are.
