Abstract
To evaluate the safety of propane cylinder, the flame test was performed by the flame exposure scenario of propane cylinder. The cylinder which was exposed in a flame was rapidly occurred to increase the internal pressure by liquid expansion, if so it cause of physical explosion. Therefore, the cylinder which was applied with thermal pressure relief device sholud be not bursted and the propane should be discharged to outside safely. The flame average temperature that was around of cylinder is $\small{600^{\circ}C}$, and then it increased $\small{700^{\circ}C}$ by discharged propane. The result of flame test, the cylinder was deformed, but it was not bursted. The regulations of flame exposure test for propane cylinder were not restricted, this paper can be applied to restrict the flame test if the cylinder is possible to expose the flame. Also, the results is expected as reference for estimation of the pressure cylinder performance.
