flaming

flame

To communicate emotionally via electronic means. Just as people might argue what is polite behavior and what is not, whether an email message or blog post is flaming or not is also in the eye of the beholder. Vulgar cursing would definitely be flaming, however. See netiquette, Internet troll, flame war and holy war.

The fire behavior of PA6 and flame-retarded PA6 for flaming conditions was characterized according to ISO5660 using an FTT standard cone calorimeter (FTT Company, UK) in external heat fluxes of 50 kw/[m.sup.2] with specimens of 100 x 100 x 4 [mm.sup.3].
The period between flame applications is to be 30 seconds, regardless of whether flaming of the specimen ceases of its own accord within 30 seconds of the previous application.
A burner is placed beneath the sample for 10 seconds and the duration of flaming is timed.
