Abstract:

Fiberboard is used in large quantities for use in a broad spectrum of housing and building applications, one of which is sound-deadening board. As a result of reports documenting fire experiences with sound-deadening board, research was undertaken toward reducing or eliminating smoldering tendencies of fiberboard products. This report reviews previous work and reports on a test method to reproducibly measure smoldering wave-front velocity. Author
