Overview

A series of new reduced-scale compartment fire experiments were conducted, which included local measurements of temperature and species composition. The measurements are unique to the compartment fire literature. By design, the experiments provided a comprehensive and quantitative assessment of major and minor carbonaceous gaseous species and soot at two locations in the upper layer of fire in a 2/5 scale International Organization for Standards (ISO) 9705 room. The enclosure defined in the international standard ISO 9705 "Full-scale room test for surface products" [1] is an important structure in which to conduct fire research. Many dozens of research projects and journal articles have focused on this enclosure and the standard describing its use. It is a common reference point for studies of many fire-related phenomena as well as fire modeling efforts.
