Issues in Numerical Simulation of Fire Suppression
S R. Tieszen, Amelia R. Lopez
This paper outlines general physical and computational issues associated with performing numerical simulation of fire suppression. Fire suppression encompasses a broad range of chemistry and physics over a lxge range of time and length scales. The authors discuss the dominant physical/ chemical processes imponant to fire suppression that must be captured by a fire suppression model to be of engineering usefulness. First-principles solutions are not possible due to computational limitations. even with the new generation of tera-flop computers. A basic strategy combining computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation techniques with subgrid model approximations for processes that have length scales unresolvable by gridding is presented.
