Use Of Small-scale Test Data In Hazard Analysis

Nelson, H.E. and Forssell, E.W., 1994. Use Of Small-scale Test Data In Hazard Analysis. Fire Safety Science 4: 971-982. doi:10.3801/IAFSS.FSS.4-971


An approach is presented to use small-scale test data to develop rational hazard evaluation of materials as used. The presentation uses the example of fire properties measured or derived from burn tests in the cone calorimeter and uses established relationships to derive the resulting hazard.
