This new volume provides 32 peer-reviewed papers covering: Ignition and Combustion of Nonmetals focuses on the results of an experimental study on the ignition of fire retarded polyurethane foam in oxygen concentrations from 30% to 60%; frictional ignition testing of composite materials; pneumatic-impact ignition of sebum oil film in high-pressure oxygen; and ignition of non-metals in a study conducted to characterize the flammability of commonly used surgical drapes by their oxygen index. Ignition and Combustion of Metals presents a study on promoted combustion of metals in ambient and elevated temperatures; high temperature ignition of metals in oxygen; heated promoted combustion tests from the industry-sponsored 98-1 program; study on surface ignition of aluminum in oxygen; and the effect of sample geometry on flammability of carbon steel in oxygen. Oxygen Compatibility of Components and Systems discusses a BAM study on the transfer of tests on materials to valves and fittings in real life situations; oxygen compatibility assessment on components and systems; a study on mechanical impact of aluminum cylinders pressurized with oxygen; and an explanation of why the adiabatic compression test was proposed for the qualification of oxygen-compatible equipment such as valves, regulators, and flexhoses. Analysis of Ignition and Combustion provides a review on a relatively little investigated ignition mechanism (flow friction). Failure Analysis and Safety covers oxygen cylinders; fires in the P-3 aircraft oxygen system; analysis and hazard mitigation of the life-support oxygen system on Royal Australian Air Force P-3 Orion Spacecraft; investigation of oxygen-acetylene flashback reactions in welding hoses; and analysis tools used to evaluate oxygen hazards and the oxygen compatibility of metals. Aerospace Applications discusses electrical arc ignition testing of spacesuit materials; proficiency testing for evaluating aerospace materials test anomalies; compariso
