Final rept. Jan 73-Feb 74
AIR FORCE AERO PROPULSION LAB WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB OH
Pagination or Media Count:
The effort described was designed to obtain weapons effects data on fuel tanks and their peripheral areas in support of an ASD non-nuclear survivability program. Specifically, the objectives of this program were to obtain data to assist in determining 1 probabilities of fuel tank explosions, and 2 probabilities of fires in void areas adjacent to fuel tanks, caused by certain non-nuclear combat threats. An additional objective was to evaluate the effectiveness of the level of nitrogen inerting proposed for aircraft fuel tanks.
