Chairman Karl E. Wallace called attention to the fact that architects, code organizations, structural engineers, and fire safety personnel have long used flame spread, smoke generation, and fuel contributed indices as tools to design safe buildings--but that the existing methods used to establish these indices are complicated and are possibly not as well understood as they should be. He explained that nationally recognized authorities had been assembled to discuss some of the various test procedures used by Federal agencies.
