    Industry Backs IEEE-NFPA Arc Flash Testing Program With Initial Donations Of $1.25 Million - ElectricNet (press release)
    The more than 2,000 test protocols planned for the IEEE/NFPA Arc Flash Collaborative Research and Testing Project will create deeper insight into arc flash and arc blast phenomena, especially in areas not researched before. The project will measure thermal energy transfer from these phenomena, as well as such effects as pressure and sound waves, shrapnel, the toxicity of gases released, and energy radiated at infrared, visible, ultra-violet, x-ray and other wavelengths. It also will look at how enclosures affect the energy released in an arcing fault.
