Abstract:

A METHOD IS PROPOSED TO SCALE THE SUPPRESSION EFFECTIVENESS OF WATER SPRAYS AND FILM FORMING AGENTS ON HYDROCARBON POOL FIRES. THE METHOD EXPLOITS THE CONSISTENCY OF POOL FIRES > 1M IN DIAMETER WHILE SCALING DROPLET, SPRAY AND FILM CHARACTERISTICS. THIS STUDY EXAMINES THE PENETRATION, EVAPORATION AND TRAJECTORY OF AQUEOUS STREAMS THROUGH A FIRE PLUME. GROSS ENERGY BALANCES THROUGH THE FLAME AND APPLICATION DENSITY TO THE FUEL SURFACE ARE COMPUTED IN ORDER TO DERIVE SCALING RELATIONSHIPS. THIS SIMPLIFIED APPROACH IS TESTED AGAINST EXISTING FULL SCALE SUPPRESSION DATA. THE CONCEPTUAL DESIGN OF A SMALL SCALE TEST APPARATUS IS PREPARED BASED UPON THE ANALYSIS.
