IMPROVED FIRE- AND SMOKE-RESISTANT MATERIALS FOR COMMERCIAL AIRCRAFT INTERIORS: A PROCEEDINGS

The National Research Council's Committee on Fire- and Smoke-Resistant Materials for Commercial Aircraft Interiors hosted a conference at the National Academy of Sciences on November 8-10, 1994. Conference attendees included representatives from industry, government, and academe. The conference participants identified trends in aircraft fire safety and suggested promising research directions for the Federal Aviation Administration's program in smoke and fire resistant materials. This conference report contains the 15 papers presented by the invited speakers and summaries of the workshop sessions that followed. The papers served as background for the workshop sessions, each of which addressed a specific topic: (1) toxicity issues, (2) fire performance parameters, (3) drivers for materials development, and (4) new materials technology. Each workshop group discussed the current state of development, technological needs, and promising technology for future development.
