ISO 1716:2002

Reaction to fire tests for building products -- Determination of the heat of combustion

This International Standard specifies a method for the determination of the heat of combustion of building products at constant volume in a bomb calorimeter.

This International Standard describes a test method for the measurement of the gross heat of combustion (PCS). Annex A describes the calculation of the net heat of combustion ( PCI) when required.

Information on the precision of the test method is given in annex B.
