Dimensional modelling of the fuel outgassing phenomenon: Improving flammability assessment of aircraft fuel tanks (2011)
Journal Article
Harris, A. P., & Ratcliffe, N. M. (2011). Dimensional modelling of the fuel outgassing phenomenon: Improving flammability assessment of aircraft fuel tanks

Fuel outgassing (oxygen evolution) within aircraft fuel tanks presents a serious flammability hazard. Time constants representing oxygen transfer rate, from the fuel into a tank’s ullage, are used to model the effect of outgassing on tank flammabilit...
