The objective of this program was to develop design rationale, test criteria and complete detail design of an aircraft engine nacelle fire test simulator. The fabrication of a simulator from the detail design of this program will allow a more realistic investigation of engine nacelle fire problems and the evaluation of fire prevention hardware, detection and extinguishment systems generated by aircraft programs. The fabrication of the simulator was not a part of this program. This report documents the steps taken in defining the simulator design goals and requirements, conducting of preliminary design, trade-off studies, the selection of a final simulator configuration, and detail design of this simulator.
