Organization: ISO
Publication Date: 15 April 2008
Status: active
Page Count: 38
ICS Code (Ignitability and burning behaviour of materials and products): 13.220.40
ICS Code (Fire-resistance of building materials and elements): 13.220.50
scope:

This International Standard specifies a series of test methods that simulate a real scale fire on a test object or group of objects under well-ventilated conditions. A range of different fire sizes can be studied according to the scale of the equipment available.

The method is intended to evaluate the contribution to fire growth provided by an object or group of objects using a specified ignition source. A test performed in accordance with the method specified in this International Standard provides data for all stages of a fire.

NOTE When the data are used in relation to specific situations the effect of the environment, including the effects of feedback and restricted ventilation, needs to be taken into account.
