Title: Fire Test
Description: Flames from a living-room pour out the front door of a townhouse in NIST tests that studied conditions that can result in the failure of the facepiece lens of the self-contained breathing apparatus worn by firefighters. Facepieces were outfitted with devices to record temperatures and then mounted on a headform test stand placed outside doorway. The foil-wrapped equipment to the right of test set-up measured thermal heat flux.
