A specimen with dimensions 0,795 m x 0,145 m is exposed in vertical position to a graded radiant heat flux field supplied by a gas-fired radiant panel. The angle between the specimen and the radiant panel is 150.

The distribution of the heat flux field along the specimen is calibrated at fixed positions 100 mm apart. The values of the heat flux field at these positions as specified in the standard are between 1,5 and 50,5 kW/m2.

Gases given off from the specimen are ignited by a pilot flame from a burner which is situated at the end of the specimen which is nearest to the radiant panel. The combustion gases are drawn off through a fume stack above the specimen.
