Limiting Oxygen Concentration of Aviation Fuels
Steve Summer Project Engineer Federal Aviation AdministrationFire Safety Branch
Ref. Kuchta (1986)
“…at oxygen concentrations of 12%, a large reduction in the overpressure resulting from a fuel-vapor explosion initiated by the 30-mm HEI was achieved. Oxygen concentrations of 9% were found to provide very little improvement…when compared to oxygen concentrations of 12%.”
