    Important resource on the proper, safe use of materials in oxygen-enriched environments. 34 papers provide a previously unavailable reference of oxygen-system design concepts and practices. A keynote paper by Dr. Irvin Glassman disucsses the combustion fundamentals of low-volatility materials in oxygen-enriched environments. 6 sections follow:

    • Development and Evaluation of Test Methods

    • Ignition and Combustion of Nonmetals

    • Ignition and Combustion of Metals

    • Analysis of Ignition Mechanisms

    • Material Selection

    • Miscellaneous

    For oxygen manufacturers and users, oxygen system designers, safety officers propulsion system designers and operators, anesthesiologists and oxygen therapists, and scuba equipment users.
