A series of five experiments examining the effects of a
simulated fire fighting water spray introduced into a
fully-developed compartment fire were conducted for the
Federal Emergency Management Agency by the Center for
Fire Research at the National Bureau of Standards per
Interagency Agreement. Data from these tests were
intended to be used as a check of predicted results from
the Mission Research Corporation Fire Demand Model. The
results illustrte the dynamics of compartment fire
suppression using water sprays. This report is
reproduced in two parts. Part 1 contains a description
of the experiments and summary of results including
graphical presentations of data. Part 2 contains tables
of test data and test observations presented in four
