Thomas, P.H. and Wraight, H.G., 1955. THE AMERICAN FLAMMABILITY TEST FOR FABRICS COMPARED WITH THE SEMI CIRCULAR TEST. Fire Research Notes 191
Two tests, the American standard test and the semi circular test, for the flanmability of fabrics are compared with each other and with the speed at which flame spreads up a fabric hanging vertically. It is shown that the empirically derived correlation between measured vertical flame speed and the performance of the semi circular test can be used to correlate the two tests with each other. Certain anamolies with the American test are discussed.
