Fire Tech 1969 Aug; 5(3):203-216
Part I of this two-part report deals with the effects of oxygen enrichment on ignition temperatures and flame spread rates of materials that might be found in hospital hyperbaric chambers. Part II will be carried in the November issue. Increased use of oxygen-enriched atmospheres in medicine, undersea exploration, and the space program (twice with tragic results) has caused attention to be focused on the effects of oxygen enrichment on the flammability of, materials.
