Abstract:

Studies were made of the accumulation of electrostatic charges and subsequent discharges in aircraft fuel systems using explosion suppressant foams. The studies included a fuel system survey, small scale experiments, and fuel inlet nozzle designs. The results were used to develop guidelines for minimizing electrostatic hazards in aircraft fuel systems. Author
