Standard Test Method for Determining the Combustion Behavior of Metallic Materials in Oxygen-Enriched Atmospheres
|Publication Date:||1 November 2018|
|ICS Code (Chemical analysis of metals):||77.040.30|
This test method covers test apparatus and techniques to determine the minimum test gas pressure and sample temperature that supports self-sustained burning and the regression rate of the melting surface of a standardized sample of a metallic material that has been ignited using a promoter.
The data obtained from this test method are dependent on the precise test sample configuration and provide a basis for comparing the burning characteristics of metallic materials. No criteria are implied for relating these data for the suitability of a material's use in any actual system.
Requirements for apparatus suitable for this test method are given, as well as an example. The example is not required to be used.
This test method is for gaseous oxygen or any mixture of oxygen with inert diluents that will support burning, at any pressure or temperature within the capabilities of the apparatus used.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses after SI units are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
