A bibliography has been issued which cites approximately 600 reports concerned with the safety of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and liquid methane. Each citation includes title of the report, author, abstract, source, description of figures, key references, and key words or subject terms. The bibliography is indexed by key subjects and also by authors. This bibliography was assembled from a computer search of the NASA Aerospace Safety Data Bank. The results of the search were reviewed and evaluated to ensure that the citations included in the bibliography are relevant items that would be useful to design engineers and safety specialists. The majority of the citations included were retrieved from the Cryogenics Fluid Safety collection in the NASA Aerospace Safety Data Bank. Other collections searched included Fire and Explosion Technology, and Mechanics of Structural Materials. Citations from the latter two collections relate to the detection of fuel leaks, fighting of aircraft fires with various extinguishing agents, explosions of fuel systems, and fragmentation hazards. The reports cited contain data helpful with problems associated with LNG and/or methane fires and explosions.
