Abstract : This report summarizes the results of laboratory tests to determine if a relationship exists between the explosion characteristics of a gasoline combustion engine backfire, and the pressure pulse parameters obtained in a standard propane/air explosion test chamber used to evaluate carburetor flame arresters; and to develop a set of detailed procedures for the test and evaluation of carburetor flame arrester assemblies.
