Adiabatic compression testing - part I : historical development and evaluation of fluid dynamic processes including shock-wave considerations
Newton, Barry & Steinberg, Theodore (2009) Adiabatic compression testing - part I : historical development and evaluation of fluid dynamic processes including shock-wave considerations. Journal of ASTM International, 6(8), pp. 1-18.
Adiabatic compression testing of components in gaseous oxygen is a test method that is utilized worldwide and is commonly required to qualify a component for ignition tolerance under its intended service. This testing is required by many industry standards organizations and government agencies. This paper traces the background of adiabatic compression testing in the oxygen community and discusses the thermodynamic and fluid dynamic processes that occur during rapid pressure surges. This paper is the first of several papers by the authors on the subject of adiabatic compression testing and is presented as a non-comprehensive background and introduction.
