The flame spread Index and Smoke Developed Index values obtained by the ASTM E 84 test are used by code officials and regulatory agencies in the acceptance of interior finish materials for various applications.

The best-known test for evaluating building materials for fire safety is the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) Test Method E, commonly known as the tunnel test. This test measures a material’s reaction after being exposed to fire, in terms of flame spread and smoke density.

Parker, “An Investigation of the Fire Environment in the ASTM E Tunnel Test,” NBS Technical NoteNational Bureau of Standards, Gaithersburg, MD (). Google Scholar 5. Thermal Environment in the Steiner Tunnel To model the performance of a product in the Steiner tunnel test, it is necessary to know the thermal environment, in particular the incident heat flux along the length of the specimen.

Parker conducted a comprehensive investigation of the fire environment in the Steiner tunnel test [11]. Fig. 4 shows the. Four flame spread tests on materials and components were surveyed in this paper. They are ASTM Ea, BS Part 7:ASTM E/NFPA and ISO (E). The scale of these tests, the heat sources concerned, testing requirements, environment, experimental setups, results and classification systems were reviewed.

Architectural Testing is an ISO testing laboratory that is IAS accredited to perform the following fire-related test methods: ASTM E 84, Standard Test Method for Surface Burning Characteristics of Building Materials; ASTM EStandard Test Method for Fire Tests of Roof Coverings.

An instrument has been developed to monitor the equivalence ratio in combustion systems. It is based on a novel oxygen consumption measuring method. The instrument does not require knowledge of the chemical composition of the process being monitored. Both gaseous and solid (soot) products of incomplete combustion are successfully handled.

The device is relatively compact and can be. dard fire resistance test methods. Flame spread and smoke produc-tion, not always tested for in ear-lier years, are measured a c c o r d i n g to the ASTM E 84 test method.
