Most of were wood product lining materials with some insulation materials. The test method and apparatus description are presented as well as observations andresults of the tests. Heat flux values and ceiling temperatures in the room are tabulated as well as flashover time and smoke results. Room temperatures, duct flow rate, duct temperature, as well as O2, CO2, CO concentrations in the duct are also presented. Graphs of heat release rate, heat flux, smoke production and ceiling temperatures are included.
