Reduction of the fire hazard of fuel is critical to improving survivability in impact-survivable aircraft accidents. Despite current fire prevention and mitigation approaches, fuel flammability can overwhelm postcrash fire scenarios. The Workshop on Aviation Fuels with Improved Fire Safety was held recently to review the current state of development, technological needs, and promising technologies for new aviation fuels resistant to ignition during a crash. This book contains a summary of workshop discussions and 11 papers on such subjects as fuel and additive technologies, aircraft fuel system requirements, and characterization of fuel fires.
