    Abstract

    This paper has attempted to indicate the need for full-scale room and compartment tests at this time, indicating two possible uses of the compartment test (for approval, or for validating small-scale tests) and has discussed a few of the factors which affect the design of the tests, using the choice of ignition source as an example of the problems involved in the test design. Reference is made to the recommended practice developed by the task group of American Society for Testing and Materials Committee E-39.10.01.
