Abstract
Papers given at the International Symposium on the Explosion Hazard Classification of Vapors, Gases, and Dusts, held at the National Academy of Sciences, Washington, D.C., July 15 to 18, 1986, were presented. The symposium was organized by OSHA and NIOSH for the purpose of bringing together international experts to exchange thinking and knowledge on classifying the explosion hazards of gases, vapors, and dusts. Papers presented included classifying hazardous materials in the United States (US), reviewing international, regional, and US standards, reviewing early research on gas and dust explosions, investigating fundamental problems in classifying flammable gases, vapors, and dusts, reviewing needs in dust explosion testing, discussing the physics underlying the maximum expected safe gap, comparing standard methods for determining the maximum experimental safe gap, discussing dust explosibility testing, reviewing dust explosion research and the explosion hazard associated with combustible mixtures in Poland, classifying explosion hazards in the Federal Republic of Germany, measuring the explosive violence of dust clouds, classifying and testing methods for gases, vapors, and dusts in France, the Netherlands, and Japan. The transcripts of panel discussions on classifying gas and combustible dusts according to their explosion hazard and future activities were also provided.
