Abstract:

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.
