Abstract:

This report presents the results of a project that was undertaken to correlate aircraft fire hazards aground with some quantified airfield parameters involving aircraft operations. The objectives of this study were to explore the feasibility of 1 correlating aircraft accidentincident history data with airfield operations data in order to characterize aircraft fire hazards which exist in aircraft operations on airfields and 2 developing the criteria needed to assign crash fire suppression equipment to airfields in a manner that reflects the level of an aircraft fire hazard which exists at a given airfield and the capability of specific equipment to deal with the hazards that actually exist.
