Uncertainties in measuring heat and smoke release rates in the room or corner test and the SBI test (NT TR 477)

NT TR 477

  • When performing fire testing and classifying materials, Heat Release Rate (HRR) and Smoke Production Rate (SPR) are two of the most important quantities to determine. In this work, the individual sources of errors are defined for the HRR and the SPR calculations, with regard to the Room/Corner Test and the Single Burning Item (the SBI) test.

Physical interpretation of temperature data measured in the SBI fire test (NT TR 416)

NT TR 416

  • In the SBI fire test, there are temperature sensors in the exhaust duct allowing measurement of the temperature rise of the exhaust gases (T measurement). In principle these sensors provide means to monitor the production rate of thermal energy.
