S. 60 Data from these two systems were gathered by strip chart recorders, and the heat release rates would be determined from the data following the test. The “Smith Calorimeter” progressed through the standards process and became ASTM E 906, Standard Test Method for Heat and Visible Smoke Release Rates for Materials and Products Using a Thermopile Method. Even though these methods provided insight into the burning behavior of materials, their convective enthalpy measurements failed to capture radiant loss and heat loss to the apparatus walls.
