This chapter describes the experimental set-up of Dalmarnock Fire Tests One and Two. While Test One was planned to allow a fire to develop freely to post-flashover conditions, Test Two was designed to allow for ventilation management. A detailed account of the building layout, the set-up of the different experiments and measurements carried out during the full-scale tests is given, together with the specifics of the instrumentation installed in the building. A description of the fuel load and the ventilation conditions during both tests is also presented. Due to the large amount of data presented, the chapter is organised so that the most relevant information is shown in the main body of the text, and additional detail, such as the instrument coordinates, is appended in an annex at the end of the chapter.
