The other fire toxicity test method began as a joint effort between the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) and the National Bureau of Standards. 56 (Figure 4) Heat Release Rate Calorimetry In the 1950s, the study of fires and fire growth identified that the burning rate and heat release rate of materials were critical factors associated with fire growth.
