Experiments were carried out evaluating the performance of flame arresters when fitted to cubical enclosures. Data are presented giving simple correlation between the area of flame arrester or vent and the maximum explosion pressure in small cubical vessels using 6.5 per cent ethylene-air explosive mixture. The effect of simple obstacles on the maximum explosion pressure was also investigated. These results are compared with the results obtained in the past, using propane-air mixtures.
