Abstract:

The results of a study to evaluate candidate aircraft fire barrier materials to in-flight fires are presented. Four organic materials, two inorganic materials, and three metallics combined with insulators were tested in an in-flight fire simulator. Eight intumescent coatings were evaluated to determine their ability to close barrier gaps in the event of a fire. Author
