Significance and Use:

4.1 This guide is intended primarily for users and developers of mathematical fire growth models. It is also useful for people conducting fire tests, making them aware of some important applications and uses for small-scale fire test results. The guide thus contributes to increased accuracy in fire growth model calculations, which depend greatly on the quality of the input data.

4.2 The emphasis of this guide is on ignition, pyrolysis and flame spread models for solid materials.


1.1 This guide describes data required as input for mathematical fire growth models.

1.2 Guidelines are presented on how the data can be obtained.

1.3 The emphasis in this guide is on ignition, pyrolysis and flame spread models for solid materials.

1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.6 This fire standard cannot be used to provide quantitative measures.
