A three year research effort has been conducted as part
of the Next Generation Program (NGP) to develop a
laboratory screening device suitable for predicting the
behavior of halon alternatives in full-scale fire
suppression experiments. Most of work has focused on the
transient delivery of gaseous agents and interactions
with an obstacle-stabilized propane pool fire. The final
report of this effort was recently issued as a NIST
report (NISTIR 6733). Motivation for the study and
significant findings are summarized in this paper.
