Furniture flammability

In 1985, Vytenis Babrauskas and John F. Krasny published the first-ever full-length tome on the flammability of upholstered furniture:
  • Babrauskas, V., and Krasny, J. F., Fire Behavior of Upholstered Furniture (NBS Monograph 173). [U. S.] National Bureau of Standards, Gaithersburg MD (1985).

In 2001, this monograph was comprehensively rewritten and expanded to more than twice its original size. In addition, William J. Parker joined as an author in this effort:

  • Krasny, J. F., Parker, W. J., and Babrauskas, V.,Fire Behavior of Upholstered Furniture and Mattresses, William Andrew Publishing, Norwich NY (2001). ISBN 0815514573.
