C3F8 is shown to require the least storage volume among
twelve fluorocarbons for suppressing a quasi-detonation.
CF3I performs the best of the gaseous suppressants
evaluated in a spray burner. Two experimental
facilities are described as part of an effort to
identify suitable replacements for CF3Br in aircraft
applications. A turbulent spray burner simulates the
hazard associated with a ruptured fuel line in an engine
nacelle or dry bay. A deflagration/detonation tube
evaluates the ability of a gaseous agent to attenuate
the pressure build-up and Mach number of a
