Whether flashover occurs in a compartmental fire can be confirmed by observing the phase space diagrams of fire temperature as commonly adopted in chaos studies. Two inspection criteria are proposed for determining flashover. Two full-scale burning tests, one with and the other without flashover, are used to illustrate the inspection approach.
