AbstractIn the wreckage of crashed aircraft, fragments are often found to show signs of fire, and it may be of great importance to determine whether fire preceded or followed the crash. If a certain number of fire-marked fragments should be found to fit on to one another, this may be due to chance or to marking before fracture. This study provides a means of estimating the probability of given configurations on the hypothesis of random distribution of the marked pieces.
