Abstract : This report describes preliminary experiments in the study of the effects of additives on the performance of illuminating flare compositions. The results indicate trends in performance and provide data from which large scale experiments can be planned. A theory is proposed to explain the periodic fluctuation in light output observed in most flare systems. (Author)
