Corner wall and tunnel testing of foamed thermosetting plastics has suggested that the E-84 anomaly can be resolved by the use of a rate index in the range of 0 to 77.5, where a distance criterion currently prevails. Inherent inaccuracies, however, might continue to require occasional corner wall testing.
