IGNITION OF FUEL SPRAYS BY HOT SURFACES AND STABILIZATION OF AIRCRAFT FIRES

This first annual report discusses a research project undertaken to investigate experimentally and theoretically the ignition of fuel sprays by hot surfaces and the stabilization of aircraft fires related to aircraft fire safety. The basic problems are outlined, and the experimental facilities developed for the research are described, along with a discussion of operating experience to date. (Author)
