Flammability is dependent on a materials
and the heat produced
(heat of combustion)
as the material burns.
In order to make comparisons between different materials, any flammability
tests should provide results that can be expressed as numbers. Given the
above mentioned factors that influence flammability, there are numerous tests
that are conducted on materials. The following is a list of some standard tests.
