|Title:||Modeling Study of the Behavior of Liquid Fire Suppression Agents in a Simulated Engine Nacelle|
|Published:||May 06, 2004|
|Abstract:||This paper reports a modeling study to determine the fire suppression potential for compounds based on their evaporation and transport behavior in a simulated engine nacelle. There is a high likelihood that low boiling point liquids will be required to provide fire protection in many scenarios, including engine nacelles. In such high, non-trivial flow environments, the performance of the suppression agent depends on a number of parameters including physical properties of the agent (heat capacity, boiling point, and heat of vaporization), the application temperature, and the flow-imposed time constraints for evaporation.|
