Combustion experiments in spacePivotal areas for needed combustion observations (available through space shuttle experimentation) include: (1) single- and two-phase premixed flame propagation and extinction limits; (2) noncoherent flame propagation and extinction; (3) autoignition of premixed single-phase and two-phase combustible reactants; (4) upper pressure limit combustion phenomena and ignition, propagation, and extinction processes in the neighborhood of such limits; (5) oscillatory combustion associated with the hydrocarbon-oxygen and with the carbon monoxide-oxygen systems; (6) two-phase flame spread and extinction involving lage liquid-gas or solid-gas interfaces; (7) radiative ignition of solids and liquids; (8) pool burning; (9) smoldering of solid combustibles and the associated transition to flaming or extinction; (10) laminar gas jet combustion; and (11) transient responses of combustible systems to time variation in gravitational field strengths. A number of these may be impacted by undesirably high g-jitter effects.
