AbstractThis report summarizes the National Fire Laboratory's results from cone calorimeter tests undertaken in 1991 and 1992. Twenty-seven materials were tested, with the emphasis on interior wood lining materials, but also included: foams, furniture, wallpaper and some composite materials. The effect of testing with a grid cover compared to an edge frame is most apparent in the rate of heat release, ignition time, smoke production and flameout time. Using a grid cover, the rate of heat release was noticeably less while the other variables were increased.
