AbstractThis paper presents a summary of the test results, including the heat release rates and ignition times from both the small-scale and the full-scale test methods. The paper also compares small-scale test data with those of full-scale tests. Each small-scale test method was examined to evaluate its appropriateness in predicting the full-scale fire performance of various lining materials. Cone calorimeter data were used to approximate flashover time in the full scale test.
