Abstract:

The results of a special test program designed to determine the hazards of Titan II propellant handling mishaps are reported. Twenty model missile spills using total propellant quantities of 50 and 300 lb and two large- scale spills using total propellant quantities up to 1600 lb were made. The Titan II propellants, N2O4 and mixed N2H4, were also spilled in quantities up to 2.5 lb of total propellant in a series of small-scale tests. A biological study was performed on one large-scale test.
