A heating system was supplied and operated to support an AFCRL test program of warm fog dispersal. The system consisted of four parallel rows of liquid propane burners and associated tanks, pumps, and fuel lines. The maximum heat release was 600 million Btuhr which was adequate to clear fog along a 400-ft width, 200 ft high in 10 mph winds of 40 degrees range in direction. A total of 191 tests were run 63 with fog and 128 with clear air. This report describes the system and presents a log of the heating rates and burner arrangements which were operated for the tests conducted by AFCRL. Author
