Abstract:

Research during the second and third years of this contract has centered around five general areas the determination of the region of noncombustion in compressed breathing gases, the determination of the upper flammability limits of hydrogen-oxygen mixtures at superatmospheric pressures, screening of flame resistant materials and recommendations of end-item diving products, full scale combustion tests in the decompression chamber and high-expansion foam fire extinguishing tests. The report also includes an updated survey of the literature and sections on anticipated future studies and apparatus and technique. Author
