Abstract : A gas-fired, water-jacketed furnace and auxiliary equipment designed to expose one face of an 18- by 18-inch specimen of wood to controlled flaming conditions is described. Based on the input and output data for this system, the rate of heat release from the test specimen can be computed. Various means by which the equipment can be operated and the rate of heat release computed are included. (Modified author abstract)
