Abstract
Current research in fires and explosions is reviewed. Hardware items are emphasized so as to provide tangible indications of progress. In this way, explosion research is presented as a progress report on the ignition quenching device for methane ignitions and on triggered barriers and passive barriers for coal dust explosion suppression; fire research is presented in terms of detection methods for incipient combustion and of hardware for the remote sealing of mine fires.
