This work is part of a larger effort to evaluate the
performance of fire-fighting agents used to protect
structures from heat and fire damage. A joint research
program between the University of Maryland and the
Building and Fire Research Laboratory at the National
Institute of Standards and Technology supported this
effort. The present research looks at fire-fighting
(fire-protection) foams designed to stop the spread of
fire by protecting structures in or near the fire
