Today's airplanes comply with existing fire protection regulations. The regulations affecting fire protection change with the advent of new technologies and experiences. ...This paper addresses various fire protection methods from eliminating fuels and ignition sources to reducing flammability, from zoning and compartmentation to material selection and ventilation, from temperature control to fire detection and fire extinguishing or fire suppression systems. In addition the fire protection design basis for all areas of the airplane, from radome to the tail that include the flight deck, engines, auxiliary power unit (APU), cabin, cargo compartments, fuel tanks, lavatories, crew compartments, electrical and electronics compartment, accessory compartments and the tail compartment are discussed. ...This paper addresses methods for fire protection in the design of new airplanes. Prevention of a fire is the best method of fire protection, for it is best to prevent a fire than to have to deal with a fire in flight, but dealing with a fire in flight may become inevitable at one point or another.

Aircraft Fire Protection Technology Applications

A different approach to aircraft passenger survival has been undertaken by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and AVCO Corporation-that of shielding the passenger compartment by surrounding it with a fire resistant foam shell capable of protecting the occupants long enough for the fire to burn out, or for fire-fighting equipment to reach the aircraft and extinguish the fire. ...Application of the newly evolved intumescent material as a passive thermal control system to provide fire protection for remote or inaccessible dry bay regions and equipment bays is also discussed. ...A different approach to aircraft passenger survival has been undertaken by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and AVCO Corporation-that of shielding the passenger compartment by surrounding it with a fire resistant foam shell capable of protecting the occupants long enough for the fire to burn out, or for fire-fighting equipment to reach the aircraft and extinguish the fire.

The smaller free air volume and fully cold plated avionic bays of the CEV requires a different approach in fire protection than the ones currently utilized. The fire protection approach discussed in this paper incorporates historical lessons learned and fire detection and suppression system design philosophy spanning from Apollo to the International Space Station. ...As part of preparing for the Crew Exploration Vehicle (CEV), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) worked on developing the requirements to manage the fire risk. The new CEV poses unique challenges to current fire protection systems. The size and configuration of the vehicle resembles the Apollo capsule instead of the current Space Shuttle or the International Space Station. ...The fire protection approach discussed in this paper incorporates historical lessons learned and fire detection and suppression system design philosophy spanning from Apollo to the International Space Station.

Development and Evaluation of an Onboard Aircraft Cabin Water Spray System for Postcrash Fire Protection

1991-09-01
912224
This paper outlines a program that could ultimately lead to design standards for an onboard aircraft cabin water spray system to suppress postcrash fires. A brief summary of the program and the status of current activities is presented. The latter includes full-scale effectiveness tests, a study of possible problems arising from the inadvertent (or intentional) discharge of the system, and computation of the potential benefits (lives saved) from the mandatory requirement of such a system. ...The bulk of the paper describes the results of full-scale tests under several postcrash fire scenarios to measure the increased survival rate when using a water spray system. It is shown that a water spray system may provide passengers 2 to 3 minutes of additional time to escape under certain postcrash fire scenarios. ...It is shown that a water spray system may provide passengers 2 to 3 minutes of additional time to escape under certain postcrash fire scenarios.
