CLASSIFICATION OF OXIDIZERS AND FLAMMABLE SOLIDS. PHASE III
Existing bench-scale test methods for oxidizers and flammable solids were critically evaluated for reproducibility and ease of duplication by the Naval Ordnance Station, Indian Head, Md. Detailed drawings for the burning rate test and time-to-ignition test have been submitted to permit the construction of standard test devices for uniform application. Variables which can affect measured test results have been identified and recommendations have been made to preclude obtaining a wide range of test values when measured by different laboratories.
