AbstractThis report describes a series of experiments conducted with various residential furnishings in a single-room test facility in the Characterization of Fires in Multi-Suite Residential Dwellings (CFMRD) project. The furnishings tested included mattresses, bed clothes, bed assemblies, upholstered seating furniture, clothing arrangements, books, plastic audio/video media and storage cases, toys and a computer workstation setup. Since the amount of data generated from the experiments is too extensive to be covered in a single comprehensive document, this report aims to: a) serve as the initial documentation of the complete test series and, b) present results that supported certain decisions concerning the course of the experimental program. It is intended that additional results and analyses not presented herein will be covered in subsequent publications.
