    The ninth volume in this ongoing series features the latest data on oxygen compatibility, safe systems designs, and metallic and nonmetallic ignition and combustion processes. 32 peer-reviewed papers are divided into the following key areas:

    Overview--reviews and compares current test methods used in the selection of appropriate materials for use in oxygen service.

    Material Selection--investigates the appropriate use and selection of materials in oxygen-enriched atmospheres.

    Ignition and Combustion of Nonmetals--discusses the results of studies on the ignition and combustability of various polymeric materials with regard to age, oxidizing environments, and particle impact in high-pressure oxygen.

    Ignition and Combustion of Metals--examines ignition and combustion data for various metals at elevated temperatures, including carbon steels, stainless steels, nickel alloys, aluminum, and aluminum alloys.

    Analysis of Ignition and Combustion--details theoretical work related to the ignition and combustion of metals and nonmetals in oxygen–enriched atmospheres.

    Failure Analysis and Safety--covers forensic analysis of welding and medical regulator fires; training of emergency medical service personal in the U.S., Canada, and France; and the ignition potential of scuba systems.

    Structured Packings for Air Separation Plants--provides insight into the controlling mechanisms of the violent energy release and explores ignition-combustion data for aluminum packing and trayed columns in liquid oxygen. It also presents the results of a large experimental program investigating the flammability of brazed aluminum heat exchanger samples in both gaseous and liquid oxygen.

    Miscellaneous--includes a mix of subjects relevant to the study of material compatibility in oxygen-enriched atmospheres. Topics begin with a new promoted-ignition combustion system being used to study the flammability of metallic materials in gaseous oxygen and end with the use of autoignition temperature data to statistically predict the ignition sensitivity of nonmetallics when subjected to a pneumatic gaseous impact.
