Fire scenarios for an improved fabric flammability test
This project developed, analyzed, and quantified the thermal environment for four
fire scenarios created in a modified standard room. Eight propane burners were placed in
four different configurations while temperature and flux measurements were collected.
Fire environments were intended to simulate flashover, indirect flame exposure, and
wildland fires. The results will be used for the selection of a fire environment for a fullscale
garment flammability test for the Navy Clothing and Textile Research Facility.
