Overview

Twenty-eight papers from the November 2003 symposium present recent research on the ignition and combustion of both non-metals and metals, failure analysis, and personnel safety. Representing a mixture of private laboratories and public universities, the contributors assess the toxicity of nonmetallic materials used in oxygen systems, describe a unique ultrasonic technique for measuring the melting rate of metal rods burning in oxygen, and summarize the results of several promoted ignition/combustion test programs. Other topics include the pneumatic impact sensitivity of polymers for aerospace applications, the cause and origin of two large industrial gas oxygen valve fires, and the effect of molding and machining on the characteristics of Neoflon.
