ASTM WK80526

Revision of E2965-17 Standard Test Method for Determination of Low Levels of Heat Release Rate for Materials and Products Using an Oxygen Consumption Calorimeter

Rationale

For this ballot, it is recommended the “effective heat of combustion”, “gross heat of combustion”, “heat flux”, “ignitability”, “initial test heat flux”, “oxygen consumption principle”, and “smoke obscuration” data be relocated from Section 3.2 to Section 3.1. In the second line of the discussion for the term “heat flux”, the term “incident heat flux” is changed to “initial test heat flux” to be consistent with the generic definition located in Section 4 of ASTM E176.
