Abstract:

The Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) are conducting full scale fire experiments in two Navy aircraft hangars. The purpose of this project is to provide scientific data on actual jet fuel fires in high bay hangars. The Navy, and subsequently all of the Department of Defense will utilize this data to reevaluate and revise their criteria for the protection of aircraft hangars.
