ISO 19703:2018 pdf free.Generation and analysis of toxic gases in fire
The fire conditions are generally apparatus-dependent and largely dictated by the set-up procedure for the particular apparatus. The following information shall be required:
a) test specimen details, its mass, dimensions and orientation of the combustible;
b) thermal environment, in terms of the temperature (expressed in degrees Celsius) and irradiance (expressed in kilowatts per square metre) to which test specimen is subjected;
NOTE The temperature distribution and the radiation field in a test are frequently not uniform and, as a result, are rarely well documented. Sufficient information about the thermal and radiative conditions is intended to allow another person to reproduce the results using the same apparatus, compare the results with results for the same specimen tested in another apparatus, etc.
c) oxygen concentration in the air supply (volume percent or volume fraction);
d) volume of chamber or air flow. For a closed system, give the air volume (expressed in litres or cubic metres) and for an open system, give the air flow (expressed in litres per minute or in cubic metres per minute) and the dynamics of the flow. In both cases, give information on the atmospheric mixing conditions and the degree of homogeneity of the fire effluent.
Most of the following data parameters shall be used to calculate yields, equivalence ratios and combustion efficiencies in experimental fires. Usually, the units applied to data should be dictated by the operational procedure associated with a particular piece of apparatus. The following are a number of suggested typical units:
a) mass loss of the test specimen, derived by measuring the test specimen mass before and after test to give overall mass loss (expressed in milligrams, grams or kilograms) or mass loss fraction (expressed in mass percent, grams per gram or kilograms per kilogram), or by measuring the specimen mass throughout a test to give mass loss rate (expressed in milligrams per second, grams per minute or kilograms per minute);
b) gas and vapour concentrations and oxygen depletion (expressed in volume percent, volume fraction, microlitres per litre, milligrams per litre or milligrams per cubic metre);
c) smoke particulate concentration (expressed in milligrams per litre or milligrams per cubic metre) and smoke obscuration (expressed in optical density per metre or square metres per kilogram);
d) heat release (expressed in kilojoules per gram), used to calculate combustion efficiency, forms part of the protocol for some apparatuses;
e) combustion mode, time to ignition (expressed in minutes or seconds) and whether the specimen flames or not throughout the test.ISO 19703 pdf download.
