flammability; flashover; interior finishes; room fires
A review is made of studies in which full-scale fire
growth was compared with laboratory test data on
materials. Both room and corridor fires are included in
which primarily interior lining materials have been the
combustible element. The studies include standard test
methods and other laboratory devices used in the United
States and other countries. An effort was made to
intercompare experimental results in a common basis.
For example, maximum room temperature data are compared
with ASTM E-84 flame spread classifications for several
full-scale test which involved nearly the same room
geometries and same fuel arrangements.
