Suppression Agent Vapor Loading and Effectiveness Assessment for Engine Nacelles



J W. Fleming, Jiann C. Yang


There is a high probability that gases or liquids with high boiling points, higher than that of Halon 1301, will be required to provide fire protection in engine nacelles. In such complex flow environments, the performance of the suppression agent will depend on a number of parameters including physical properties of the agent (heat capacity, boiling point, heat of vaporization), the application temperature, and the flow-imposed time constraints for liquid agent evaporation. This wok addresses the potential performance of possible compounds via a computational approach in order to eliminate unsuitable compounds from consideration and determine favorable properties that successful agents are likely to possess.
