Mortar Separations in Troughs and Drums

K. L. and B. J. Kosanke

ABSTRACT: Rarely is there only one mitigation strategy to reduce the level of hazard posed by a problem. This concept is explored in the context of alternate strategies for limiting the potential problem posed by fireworks mortar bursts within troughs and drums. This begins with a discussion of the nature of the mortar burst problem and the current National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) requirements for using mortar troughs. This is followed by a discussion of a series of alternate mitigation strategies that are thought to provide equivalent spectator protection.
