    Abstract

    The fire hazard or surface flammability of materials is a matter of major interest to many public and private agencies. Although not a newly discovered phenomenon, most efforts to evaluate this property of materials quantitatively have taken place only in the past 25 years. These efforts have been uncoordinated, a considerable number of methods developed having little relation to one another or to actual fire conditions.
