Abstract:

An analysis of the ability of the atmosphere to dissipate toxic exhaust products from a rocket test system was performed. The analysis covered dispersion stack height, total, integrated dosage, inversion layer penetration, and sampling and weather data systems. Methods for determining toxicity levels downwind of a toxic emission were developed. The conditions for safely releasing various quantities of toxic materials were defined for various types of rocket firings.
