A medium-scale fire test rig was designed, constructed and tested. Early experiments showed it to have potential in establishing fire data for furnishing composites, which paralleled values produced from full scale fire tests. The apparatus had facilities to continuously monitor temperatures, smoke emission and carbon monoxide, along with analysis of other toxic gases and general observations of the fire. [Continues.]
