Abstract : Research during 1970 in the area of combustion safety in diving atmospheres has encompassed: Establishment of the relationship of gas composition, pressure and sample orientation on the rate of combustion of candidate materials for use in oxygen-enriched diving atmospheres; An evaluation of the correlation between small scale and large scale fir tests; An investigation of potential electrical sources of ignition in oxygen-enriched diving atmospheres; and Qualitative and quantitative analyses of the combustion products resulting from the burning of certain candidate materials.
