Abstract:

The problem of providing adequate fire protection in flight for inaccessible aircraft baggage compartments was investigated in the laboratory. As the packaging, handling and shipping methods used for commercial cargo are subject to existing legislation, this program was confined to investigating those fires which could originate within personal baggage. The investigation was divided into four sections luggage-fire characteristics, fire detection, fire extinguishment and fire control.
