||The use of small scale fire test data for the hazard assessment of bulk materials

||Fire tests were carried out on 16 materials using both a test protocol based on a one-third scale room corridor assembly (third scale rig (TSR) test) and a Cone Calorimeter. No simple relationship was found between the ranking order derived in the TSR protocol and the Cone Calorimeter results; general trends were apparent but correlation coefficients were poor. While the Cone Calorimeter could act as a preliminary screening test to identify those materials which perform badly, the TSR test should remain as a hazard assessment test.
