Public Access to Actual Data Files for Cone Calorimeter Tests of Wood Products
Snapshot: The cone calorimeter test is a fire test used internationally for research and development of new fire retardants and to provide input data to models for predicting the reaction of building materials to fire and the spread of a fire within a building. The primary output is the heat release rate due to combustion. The Forest Products Laboratory has widely used the test to evaluate wood products and has cited those test results in a number of publications.
