    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    1.1This guide describes data required as input for mathematical fire growth models.

    1.2Guidelines are presented on how the data can be obtained.

    1.3The emphasis in this guide is on ignition, pyrolysis and flame spread models for solid materials.

    1.4The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

    1.5This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    1.6This fire standard cannot be used to provide quantitative measures.

    1.7This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
