The purpose of this investigation is to study the
suitability of the ISO 4736 standard for chimneys in
Scandinavia, and to compare the test apparatures used. In
the fire technology laboratories of Denmark, Norway and
Finland fire safety tests were made according to ISO 4736
on a traditional masonry brick-laid chimney and on a
modern steel tube chimney with mineral wool insulation.
ISO 4736-1979 (E) "Fire tests - Small chimneys - Testing
at elevated temperatures" with some small additions is
proposed for Nordtest-method.
From the comparison it can be stated that we are not yet
in a situation where the results of chimney tests made in
the different Nordic countries could be comparable.
