Abstract: BFRL is involved in a wide range of scientific, engineering, and investigative work for the building and fire safety communities. We address technical challenges in response to critical national needs, with a particular mission focus on measurement science. The term measurement science refers to the development of performance metrics, measurement methods, predictive tools, and protocols as well as reference materials, data, and artifacts. Measurement science also includes the conduct of intercomparison studies and calibrations; the evaluation and/or assessment of technologies, systems, and practices; and the development and/or dissemination of technical guidelines and the technical basis for standards, codes, and practices in many instances via testbeds, consortia, and/or other partnerships with the private sector and academia.
