Abstract
A method for rating the potential crash fire hazard of gelled and emulsified hydrocarbon fuels was developed at the request of the Federal Aviation Administration, since the use of thickened aircraft fuels may provide a significant reduction in the crash fire hazard. The rating system is designed primarily for screening candidate thickened fuels with respect to their overall flammability hazard under laboratory-scale conditions.
