The Effect of Intentionally Caused Fire Leaks into 3-Inch Display Firework Aerial Shells

K. L. and B. J. Kosanke

This article is the second report on a series of tests to more definitively establish the difference between the causes of so-called flowerpots and muzzle breaks. A previous article[1] reported on a similar study using 2-1/4 inch (57-mm) plastic aerial shells (formerly classed as consumer fireworks). The current article extends the earlier work by considering relatively high quality, although small, display firework shells. To conserve space and avoid needless repetition, some of the background and supporting information presented in the earlier article will not be repeated in the present article.
