Any other information on results incl. tables

Thermal sensitivity (effect of flame)

 

None of the six tests (three of them with theorifice plate and the remaining with theorifice plate) gave rise to explosion or breaking of any tube.

In the three tests with theorifice plate the following phenomena were observed:

a flame generation began in the test chamber after 61 seconds with a formation of white smoke followed by a sample expulsion; the combustion phenomena persistedto the maximum after 225 seconds.

In the three tests with theorifice plate similar phenomena toorifice plate were observed.

  

Mechanical sensitivity (effect of shock)

 

During the six tests the test article did not explode or break down until a 40 J impact energy.

  

Mechanical sensitivity (effect of friction)

 

During the six tests thetest article did not explode with the 360 N energy load applied
