Abstract:

Results of a program to develop safety and design criteria for the bulk storage and handling of N2O4, CF3, N2H4, and pentaborane are presented. A total of 92 small-scale tests were performed using propellant quantities not exceeding 5 lb in weight. Propellant weights used on the 9 large-scale tests ranged from 135 to 1800 lb of total propellant. Biological studies were performed on three of the large-scale tests of the hazard classificati program. Techniques were also developed for the establishment of safe-distance values for the storage of the propellants. Author
