Abstract

An experimental programme on flame spreading over the surface of polymethylmetacrylate (PMMA) samples has been conducted at reduced gravity conditions in the NASA KC-135 air craft laboratory. A total of 36 experiments were performed. 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 and flat samples have been investigated. These results were compared with those obtained for the same conditions of pressure and composition on the ground at 1 g. In this way it was shown how gravity does influence the spreading process and how this influence was affected by pressure and mixture composition.
