OSHA's Compliance Program Language document for the Combustible Dust National Emphasis Program (CPL 03-00-008 - Combustible Dust National Emphasis Program, Reissued, 5(a)(1)) states: "citations may be issued for deflagration and explosion hazards if [OSHA's Salt Lake Technical Center (SLTC)] finds KST values of the submitted dust sample to be greater than zero.
In the early '90s, Woosley and Alexei Khokhlov, now at the University of Chicago, independently proposed that a hybrid model, in which a supernova begins as a deflagration and transitions to the more rapid detonation, might be the most likely scenario.
For low-order explosives, rapid deflagration causes the production of large volumes of expanding gases at the origin of the explosion.
The approach employed by SMLOD is called the "Low-Order-Method." This procedure separates the firing device from the explosive charge, leading to a burnup or a deflagration, instead of detonating the charge.
* Class I peroxides are these formulations that are capable of deflagration but not detonation.
This is considerably less sensitive and can often burn at atmospheric pressure without deflagration leading to detonation.
The minimum explosible concentration (MEC) is the concentration of dust in air necessary to allow the propagation of a deflagration wave.
The new thruster design takes advantage of the "deflagration principle" of acceleration, which is a consideration in the design of large chemical rocket boosters.
[USPRwire, Wed May 08 2019] The development in energy generation and oil & gas sectors has prompted the higher reception of equipment, for example, Deflagration Flame Arresters Market , whose proposed capacity is to permit flow, however, keep the transmission of flame from either explosion or deflagration.
