Categorization of cable flammability: intermediate-scale fire tests of cable tray installations. Interim report. [PWR; BWR]
In order to quantify the combustion behavior and determine the water extinguishment requirements for fires in an intermediate-scale cable tray installation and to obtain input for the proper design of future fusible link sprinkler fire tests, seven freeburn and ten extinguishment fire tests were conducted on three makes of cables. The tests involved two different sprinkler delivered densities, four types of cable loading (arrangement within the tray), and two types of tray arrangement (horizontal and mixed arrays).
