Abstract:

The report describes the results of efforts to conduct an ignition-limits study of halogenated hydrocarbons halons, including the influence of bromochloromethane BCM or halon 1011 on diesel fuel flammability limits, and to determine the flammability hazards as measured by mist flashback and impact dispersion procedures that were originally developed for assessment of aircraft-fuel crash survivability. Background information is provided to illustrate the nature of the experimental problem, and the method and apparatus designed for obtaining flammability limits is described.
