Quantification and control of the hazards associated with the transport and storage of fireworks

Ziel

Serious explosion accidents have occurred in EU countries that have involved the bulk storage of display fireworks. Currently, there is no means of estimating the hazards posed by such storage and the UN transport classification scheme is all that can be used as a potential indicator. This test scheme, however, was developed for high explosives and munitions and in many instances may be inappropriate. The proposal aims to address this deficiency by undertaking work to better quantify what the UN methods measure and to develop more appropriate tests to replicate the effects of confinement in bulk storage and transport. The modes of reaction of packaged fireworks in fire will be examined and the data obtained will feed into the test development. The results from the proposed new tests will be evaluated against those obtained in full scale fire trials on steel containers and cast concrete structures containing packaged display fireworks to validate the methods.
