Abstract

An apparatus for measurements on flaming ignition sources used in ignitability tests of furniture is described. Coefficients of variation of the measured rates of heat release, flame radiation, and heat flux distribution to underlying surface are calculated and used as a measure of repeatability. The results from a small test series including five types of wood cribs and two types of paper cushions are reported.
