Combustion and Explosion


The results of the Dvicon and Kromka-1 space experiments aimed at studying the state of contaminant deposits on control samples exposed for a long time in the zone of emission incomplete combustion products from the orientation engines of the Mir Orbital Station and International Space Station. An analysis of the data on the intensity of the action of incomplete combustion products on the control samples during the space experiments made it possible to formulate a critical condition of formation of stable dry deposits of toxic contaminants.
