Abstract

An experimental programme on flame spreading over the surface of PMMA (plexiglass) samples has been conducted under microgravity conditions in the NASA KC-135 aircraft laboratory. A few experiments (three) were conducted in 1986 under the preceding contract no. 6284/85/F/FL, but the largest part of the experimental programme has been carried out under the present contract in two parabolic flights campaigns. A total of 36 experiments were performed, most of them successful. From the results of these experiments the flame-spreading velocities over PMMA samples have been obtained, as well as their laws of variation with pressure and mixture composition. Both cylindrical (axial symmetry) and flat (bidimensional symmetry) samples have been investigated.
