STUDY TO DEVELOP IMPROVED FIRE RESISTANT AIRCRAFT PASSENGER SEAT MATERIALS, PHASE 2
Fire tests are reported of improved materials in multilayered combinations representative of cushion configurations. Tests were conducted to determine their thermal, smoke, and fire resistance characteristics. Additionally, a source fire consisting of one and one-half pounds of newspaper in a tented configuration was developed. Finally, a preliminary seat specification was written based upon materials data and general seat design criteria.
