    This paper describes a series of room fire tests using upholstered furniture items for comparison with their open burning rates, previously determined in a furniture calorimeter. For the four tests conducted good agreement was seen in all periods of the room fires, including post-flashover, noting that only fuel- controlled room fires were.

A heat release rate calorimeter developed at the National Bureau of Standards was used to measure the fire performance of a wide range of furnishings.

The heat release rates measured in the calorimeter are determined through the use of oxygen consumption by: Fire Performance of Furnishings As Measured in the NBS Furniture Calorimeter.

A series of prediction methods has been assembled to provide an analytical basis for estimating fire growth in compartments.

Solutions for each prediction method can be made using programmable scientific calculators. Prediction methods are presented for: fire size and growth rates, mass loss rates, radiant heat flux, flame height, radial flame impingement, heat flux to a ceiling, smoke filling.

"Fire Performance of Furnishings as Measured in the NBS Furniture Calorimeter. This test method provides a means to measure a variety of fire-test-response characteristics resulting from burning a specimen of upholstered furniture.

The upholstered furniture specimen is allowed to burn freely under well-ventilated conditions after ignition using a propane gas burner. The most important fire-test-response characteristic measured is the rate of heat release, which. In the late s, Professor Edwin Smith, at The Ohio State University, developed the first test instrument to measure rates of heat release, the OSU-RHR calorimeter (ASTM E) Figure 5 presents results of maximum rate of heat released for a variety of materials, at an incident heat flux of 20 kW/m2, as measured in an Ohio State University.
