Abstract

The goal of this project was to measure yields of combustion byproducts using a tube furnace and to test the sensitivity of these measurements to changes in test parameters and methodology. Multiple testing parameters were varied on four separate materials and the effects on the yields of combustion byproducts were observed. Toxic gas data were compiled and analyzed. From this research a set of recommendations was created and presented to the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Gaithersburg, Maryland.
