ASTM WK35785

    Work Item: ASTM WK35785 - Revision of E1623 - 11 Standard Test Method for Determination of Fire and Thermal Parameters of Materials, Products, and Systems Using an Intermediate Scale Calorimeter (ICAL)

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: E1623 - 11

    Developed by Subcommittee: E05.21 | Committee E05 | Contact Staff Manager



    1. Rationale

    Heat release rate, rate of heat release, and heat release rate per sq m, are used inconsistently throughout the E1623 standard. This ballot attempts to correct all use of these terms.
