ASTM E 648-06a/NFPA 253-00
Standard Test Method for Critical Radiant Flux of Floor-Covering Systems Using a Radiant Heat Energy Source
The objective of this test is to measure the critical radiant flux (CRF) at flameout of a horizontally mounted floor-covering system exposed to a flaming source in a graded radiant heat energy environment in a test chamber.
Average Critical Radiant Flu (CRF): 0.32 W/cm2
International Tennis Federation Court Pace Classification
The International Tennis Federation Court Pace Rating measures the effect of the ball-surface interaction. This concept includes friction, which primarily determines the reduction in the horizontal component of the post-impact ball velocity, and vertical restitution, which determines the time between successive bounces.
