Abstract:

A laboratory method of studying the performance of ordnance items under the vulnerability environment of fire is presented. This method makes use of radiant heating techniques. General information on instrumentation techniques, test equipment required and test procedure is included. Radiant heating tests provide a relatively safe, convenient method of studying the fire vulnerability of items. Results indicate that the effects of the high temperature environments produced by actual fire tests can be reproduced by radiant heating techniques. Author
