    Abstract

    A laser heating technique and facility have been developed to study metal ignition and combustion in high-pressure oxygen. The ignition and combustion temperatures, estimates of oxidation rates, and ignition and combustion morphology can be determined. This facility and the laser heating techniques are described. Examples of the type of data obtained are presented and discussed. The ignition temperature curves for an aluminum alloy—Unified Numbering System (UNS) A96061, a stainless steel—UNS S30200, and two nickel alloys—UNS N07718 and N04400 are given.
