AbstractThe Division has been aware, for many years, of many of the difficulties presented by domestic chimneys. Not only must a chimney operate satisfactorily as a gas venting device, for which purpose it must produce draft, but it must also provide protection against the ignition of materials adjacent to it. The problems are greatly increased because the conventional chimney is constructed as a part of the house, and yet must serve any fuel-burning appliance that may subsequently be connected to it. A small laboratory has been developed for the study of the thermal and fire hazard aspects of chimneys. A first report on the work carried out over the past several years is now presented.
