Abstract:

This seven room, two story full scale fire test was run on (about) 10-6-88 to provide data supporting the analysis of a fatal fire in Sharon, PA. NISTIR 90-4268 Volume 1 by Robert S. Levine and Harold E. Nelson reports the Sharon, PA fire, a description and partial analysis of this test, and comparison of the predictions of two computer models with these test data. These data are presented here in archive form. They can be used for further analysis and for evaluating the precision of improved multi-room fire computer models. Please refer to NISTIR 90-4628 for a description of the test setup, dimensions, and instrumentation.
