Standard Test Method for Evaluation of Flame Resistant Clothing for Protection Against Flash Fire Simulations Using an Instrumented Mannequin
ASTM F1930 specifies a standard process for measuring the average predicted body burn of a fabric based on a laboratory flash fire simulation.
This test method is extremely complex and requires a high degree of technical expertise in both the test setup and operation.
This standard should be used to measure and describe the response of materials, products, or assemblies to heat and flame under controlled conditions and should not be used to describe or appraise the fire-hazard or fire-risk of materials, products, or assemblies under actual fire conditions.
However, results of this test may be used as elements of a fire-hazard assessment or a fire-risk assessment which takes into account all of the factors which are pertinent to an assessment of the fire hazard or fire risk of a particular end use.
This test method is a fire-test-response test method.
