Abstract:

A gelled fuel was modified to achieve low viscosity at low shear while maintaining significant resistance to fire while in the misting condition. The modified gelled fuel has been rheologically profiled using a variety of rheometers. Test data on flowability, rheological characteristics, and simulated crash fire misting hazard are included in the report. Author
