The report summarizes a conference, Conference on Fire and Smoke Resistant Materials, convened at the National Academy of Sciences on November 8-10, 1994. Conference participants identified trends in aircraft fire safety and suggested promising research directions for the Federal Aviation Administration s (FAA) program in smoke and fire-resistant materials. These papers served as background for workshop sessions in (1) toxicity issues, (2) fire performance parameters, (3) drivers for materials development, and (4) new materials technology. Each workshop session discussed the current state of development, technological needs, and promising technology for future development.
