AbstractIn recent years, the Fire Research Program has constructed several smoke measurement systems for use in full-scale experiments. This includes standard systems using incandescent white light and He-Ne laser light sources. Also, a number of other systems using a range of light sources have been developed for specific applications. Benchmark tests were conducted using five of these systems installed in parallel on theexhaust duct for a hood system used for heat release measurements. This report provides the results of the benchmark tests.
