Shorter, G.W.
This discussion of fire research emphasizes test procedures and architectural element performance. Measurement and simulation of fire conditions establish "fire load" specifications, structural influences, and corridor surface lining data. Topics studied include--(1) fire endurance of building elements, (2) material flammability, (3) material combustibility, (4) thermal decomposition products of plastics, (5) fire extinguishment, and (6) fire prevention and protection factors. A short forum discussion is included. (MH)
