The quantity of smoke released in a compartment fire depends both on the nature of the combustible materials involved and on the conditions of burning. The final yield of “cold” smoke is much greater than the quantity predicted from dynamic measurements of hot combustion products issuing from a test rig and is likely to be considerably more than the amount predicted from the results of small-scale tests such as Method for Specific Optical Density of Smoke Generated by Solid Materials (ASTM E 662–83).
