Four years of research in hyperbaric fire safety is summarized and reviewed in the compendium. The following areas of study are considered Environmental parameters affecting combustion in hyperbaric environments Ignition temperature and ignition delay, flame spread rates in helium and nitrogen diving atmospheres, Minimum oxygen concentration necessary for combustion in hyperbaric environments, correlation between small scale and large scale testing, the upper flammability limits of hydrogen-oxygen mixtures Potential electrical source of ignition High-expansion foam fire extinguishing tests and Screening of flame resistant materials.
