Abstract

The Accelerating Rate Calorimeter (ARC) is a well established tool for the evaluation of thermal hazards, being used by more than 200 establishments worldwide. In its short history, much has been written about the ARC, particularly concerning the instruments, design, construction, operation and its thermokinetic performance as characterised by its measurement of the decomposition parameters of pure di-t-butyl peroxide (1,2,3). To date, rather less has been published on the application of the ARC data to industrial thermal hazard problems.
