Abstract:

This program is concerned with determining the effect of particle size, aerosol concentration, vapor pressure, temperature, pressure, flammability limits and type of ignition source on the combustibility of a 3-component aerosol system. The system is composed of a liquid dispersed in a mixture of air and detonation product gases from explosives. The report gives an analysis of the combustion flashing of aerosols associ ated with explosive dissemination of liquids, along with the experimental method of approach used in this study. Factors involved in select ing a liquid for dispersion are reviewed. Equipment designs are presented.
