Initial tests were conducted to investigate potential ignition sources. The tests used solutions of 50% and 60% propylene glycol to investigate the effectiveness of each ignition source in igniting antifreeze sprays. The following graph compares the increase in heat release rate due to ignition of 60% propylene glycol antifreeze spray for each of the ignition sources.
