O'dogherty, M.J. and Panday, R.N., 1969. EXPERIMENTS ON SMOKE DETECTION PART 1: FLAMMABLE LIQUID FIRES. Fire Research Notes 770
Experiments are described on the detection of the smoke emitted from fires in mixtures of alcohol and benzene. A room of volume 153 m^3 (5400 ft^3) was used, of height 2.46 m (8 ft 1 in), with the fires at distances of up to 6.10 m (20 ft) from the detection and measuring equipment. The rate of smoke emission was varied by changing the percentage of benzene in the mixtures, and measurements were made of the detection times of two proprietary smoke detectors, the optical density of the smoke and the rise in air temperature at ceiling level.
