Paper Abstract

Balloons containing methane-oxygen mixtures were detonated to simulate ordinance fireballs. To establish fireball characteristics, analyses were required of reacting temperatures, thermal profiles, and mixing patterns of the methane-oxygen products with the atmosphere. Infrared videothermography measured and recorded the detonation and gas cloud mixing. Image digitization and in-band energy calculations were done to compare reaction parameters for different balloon tests.
