EN ISO 1716 - Gross heat of combustion (calorific value)
This method is used to determine the gross heat of combustion of solid building products at constant volume in a bomb calorimeter. Results are reported in J/kg.
If the product is non-homogeneous, meaning that it consists of multiple materials, each material must be tested separately.
The result of this test is used to classify construction products according to the fire classification standard EN 13501-1.
