Other Scholarly Content Small tunnel furnace test for measuring surface flammability Public Deposited. Analytics × Add to Cited by: 1. The ft tunnel furnace method was developed at the Underwriters’ Laboratories, Inc., Chicago, Ill., under the supervision of A. J. Steiner, for whom the tunnel method has been named. This method is probably the best known of the currently used tests for measuring surface flammability characteristics of building materials. Small tunnel furnace test for measuring surface flammability By Publisher: Madison, Wis.: U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, Forest Service, Forest Products Laboratory. Order of ranking of the surface flammability of untreated wood products by the small tunnel is generally the same as by the ASTM E 84 tunnel test. However, for fire-retardant treated and coated materials in which flaming is very weak, the direct correlation of index values is not good because the 8-ft tunnel usually produces the higher flame-index values.

The method of test was that described by Bruce and Miniutti in "Measuring Surface Flammability," ASTM Bulletin , of May , and Forest Products Laboratory Report No. , "Small Tunnel Furnace Test for Measuring Surface Flammability," In this test a specimen 14 inches wide by 8 feet long, conditioned to. plication of this method for measuring surface flammability characteristics has also been more recently released (3, 5, 6). 3 It was considered desirable in order to check the completeness and accuracy of the method description and the reproducibility of the flame-spread test to.

Fire Safety Journal 16 () Small-Scale Vertical Flammability Testing for Fabrics*~ Kay M. Villa & John F. Krasny Center for Fire Research, National Institute of Standards and Technology, Gaithersburg, Maryland , USA (Received 1 June ; revised version received 5 March ; accepted 7 March ) ABSTRACT Many small-scale vertical flammability Cited by: 1. Surface Flammability Tester is for measuring the combustion time of textile fabricwith a pile surface. Qinsun instruments. + + [email protected] Test method 1 of NFPA () (formerly the small-scale test) is performed on a vertically oriented specimen with a Meker burner positioned horizontally to have the flame facing the surface of the specimen. The burner is fuelled with methane gas at kPa, generating an intense mm long blue flame when the burner is vertically : V. Izquierdo. S.T. Mileiko, in Composite Materials Series, Treatment of fibre surface. Fibre surface coating is a usual way to improve wetting. The data compiled in Table provide some guidance to the choice of the coating materials. Coating procedures were described in Section Also, the fibre surface energy γ SV can be raised just by changing the chemical nature of the .
