Simms, D.L. and Law, M., 1964. ON THE POSSIBILITY OF IGNITION OF MATERIALS BY RADIATION FROM NUCLEAR EXPLOSIONS PART II - COMMENTS ON THE DATA FROM THE U.S. NAVAL MATERIALS LABORATORY. Fire Research Notes 562
The energies required for the sustained ignition of paper measured by Bracciaventi and De Bold at the Navel Materials Laboratory of New York and by Thomas, Simms and Law at the Fire Research Station, Boreham Wood have been compared. It is suggested that the higher energies measured by Bracciaventi and De Bold are due partly to their use of a smaller area of irradiation; they may also be partly due to their surrounding the irradiation specimen by an aluminum plate.
