||A medium scale test method for assessing the fire hazard of flammable solid materials
||Oct. 1990, Vol.3, p.349-354. Illus. 9 ref.
||The medium-scale test method currently operated by the Health and Safety Executive as a means of assessing the fire hazard of flammable solids is described. The design and construction of the apparatus are outlined along with the means of temperature measurement, calibration, test procedure, and data collection and processing. The technique has been applied to a range of materials and the results, although specific to the apparatus, have proved useful in ranking relative fire performance.
