W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa.-A new compilation, STP 1541, Uncertainty in Fire Standards and What to Do About It, is now available from ASTM International.

STP 1541 features 11 peer-reviewed papers on various issues related to uncertainty in fire standards and how different parties, such as testing laboratories, enforcement authorities, manufacturers and practicing engineers, incorporate uncertainty into their use of results from fire safety tests and calculations.

The compilation also examines the larger implications of different approaches and provides overviews of some of the newest methods and approaches for handling uncertainty. Topics include:

  • A perspective on the way that measurement uncertainty rules are applied;
  • Difficulties in estimating precision for ASTM E119, Standard Test Methods for Fire Tests of Building Construction and Materials (ASTM's most used standard fire test);
  • Uncertainty measurement issues for ASTM E84, Standard Test Method for Surface Burning Characteristics of Building Materials (ASTM's second most used standard fire test);
  • Uses of uncertainty in fire modeling and other fire protection engineering calculations;
  • Thermal measurement;
  • Contribution of heat flux gages to uncertainty in heat flux measurements;
  • Proposed new ASTM guide to translate uncertainty and variation considerations into guidance on the continued use of, or the need for new, fire test reports;
  • And much more!

    STP 1541, Uncertainty in Fire Standards and What to Do About It, is available for $59 USD in print (196 pages; 6" x 9" soft cover; ISBN: 978-0-8031-7527-3; Stock #: STP1541) or as an e-book (ISBN: 978-0-8031-8900-3; E-book Stock #: STP1541-EB).
