Abstract

This project designed a test methodology to properly map the radiation and temperature characteristics of the Early Fire Hazard Test (AS 1530.3). The testing process took into account key features such as the physical arrangement and construction of the test apparatus and its location in a room. This project was the first to successfully determine and partially model the radiation and temperature characteristics of the apparatus.
