NTIS: PB 253 589 Available for Reference At Bureau Libraries :164 pages
This research was conducted to analyze the criteria of obtaining ignition from a low-powered electrical apparatus containing no inductive elements, and to understand the importance of the different parameters with the ultimate aim of providing information that would permit the improvement of present testing techniques and apparatus. The direct and indirect effects on the possibility of obtaining ignition with an 8.3 percent methane-air mixture from a resistive circuit were covered.
