The series of tests described was motivated by the results of a full-scale test consisting of exposing a titanium fuselage to an external fuel fire. The titanium fuselage, as expected, remained intact and prevented fuel-falem penetration however, the silicone cabin pressure sealant and silicone-bonded insulation auto-ignited and burned, causing early cabin heating, significant smoke and toxic gases, and a flash-fire.
