This book describes the Conference on Fire and Smoke-Resistant Materials held at the National Academy of Sciences on November 8-10, 1994. The purpose of this conference was to identify trends in aircraft fire safety and promising research directions for the Federal Aviation Administration's program in smoke and fire resistant materials. This proceedings contains 15 papers presented by distinguished speakers and summaries of the workshop sessions concerning toxicity issues, fire performance parameters, drivers for materials development, and new materials technology.Thomas E. McSweeny* Aircraft fire safety has always been an issue of high priority with the flying public. As the agency with prime responsibility for aviation safety, the Federal Aviation Administration (FA A) continuously endeavors to maintainanbsp;...
