Abstract:

EACH PAPER IS TREATED LIKE A SEPARATE DOCUMENT AND MAY BE VIEWED AND/OR DOWNLOADED THAT WAY. TO VIEW NIST SP 971 GO TO WEBSITE: http://www.bfrl.nist.gov/866/heatflux/index.htm. This volume contains archival reports and publications produced by the National Institute of Standards and Technology and its predecessor, the National Bureau of Standards. Even though some research dates back to the 1970s, most of the work has appeared within the last five years as the result of efforts by researchers in the Building and Fire Research Laboratory and the Physics Laboratory. It was compiled at the request of the "FORUM Heat Flux Measurement Working Group" during their inaugural meeting at the Building Research Establishment, Garston, England on July 24-25, 2000. The working group operates under the auspices of the International Forum for Fire Research with a goal of promoting mutual confidence in flame heat flux measurements and calibrations of heat flux gauges among Forum laboratories. The documents are indexed two ways. First, a title index for all of the articles. To see this index, click on the Title Index link in the Tool Bar at the top of the page. The second index is by author. To see a list of authors, click on the Author Index link in the Tool Bar at the top of the page. Next, to see a listing of papers for a particular author click on the author's name.
