    OSU Heat Release Rate Chamber



    The OSU heat release rate chamber, originally designed by Smith of Ohio State University in 1972, became FAA's designated combustion tester. The test standards are FAR Part 25 Appendix F Part IV, Airbus AITM 2.0006, Boeing BSS 7322 and ASTM E906.

    The Heat Release Rate (OSU) test equipment is used by the aerospace/aviation industry to determine the heat release rate of cabin compartment materials when exposed to radiant heat. It is most commonly used to show compliance with 14 CFR 25.853(d).

    A test sample is placed into a chamber with a constant flow of air. A radiant heat source is applied to the exposed surface of the sample. The changes in temperature of the gas are monitored and recorded. The pass/fail criterion is based on the heat release rate calculated from this data.

    1. The main components of OSU heat release rate chamber are adiabatic outer box, electric heating radiation device, ignition device and constant temperature and current device. During the test, the air passes through the cabinet at a constant flow rate from the inlet. The temperature of the air inlet and outlet and the temperature of the cabinet wall are recorded by the data acquisition system. The heat release rate is calculated according to the energy per unit of exposed surface. OSU heat release rate tester can also measure toxic gases, such as CO, CO 2, NO x, HCN, Hbr, HCL, etc. by adding FTIR infrared flue gas toxicity testing device.

    2.Three samples were used, with a surface area of 15cm x 15cm and a thickness of use. The samples were placed vertically. The ignition source is a radiation device with a medium flame, which is located at the lower end of the sample. The heat flow intensity is 35kW/m2, and the applied ignition source time is 5min. It is required that the PHRR of qualified materials within 5min of the test head should not be greater than 65kW/m2, and the total heat release of the first 2min should not be greater than 65W min/cm2.

    It can adopt different incident heat flux (such as 20kW/m2, 50kW/m2, etc.), and the measured data includes the heat release rate PHRR, and the total heat release THR15 after 15min of the test.
