||RF number as a new index for assessing combustion hazard of flammable gases
||Aug. 2002, Vol.93, No.3, p.259-267.11 ref.
||A new index called "RF number" has been proposed for assessing the combustion hazard of several flammable gases and their mixtures. The RF number represents the total expectancy of combustion hazards in terms of flammability limits and heat of combustion for each known and unknown constituents. The advantages of the RF number over other indices such as R-index and F-number for classification of the combustion hazard of hydrofluorocarbon refrigerants are discussed.
