Description: The Fire Environmental Test Chamber at the Forest Fire Laboratory, Riverside, California, can duplicate under controlled conditions the key factors that affect the flammability of wildland fuels. Within certain limits, it can produce air flow, solar radiation, temperatures, and relative humidity. First developed in 1962, the test chamber has since then undergoneseveral modifications to meet requirements over and above the original capabilities. The characteristics of the test chamber and nature of the changes are explained. Recommendations on design and development are offered.
