This project developed, analyzed, and quantified the thermal environment for four fire scenarios created in a modified standard room. Eight propane burners were placed in four different configurations while temperature and flux measurements were collected. Fire environments were intended to simulate flashover, indirect flame exposure, and wildland fires. The results will be used for the selection of a fire environment for a full-scale garment flammability test for the Navy Clothing and Textile Research Facility.
