    Papers provide new data from laboratory and large-scale dust explosibility testing, data from recent accident investigations in industry, and information on the practical design of preventive and protective measures for industrial equipment. This is a comprehensive reference for such industries as coal mining, electric power generation, grain handling, plastics, chemicals, wood products, and metal powders.
