Numerical Study on the Interaction of Water Mist with a Fire Plume
A numerical study on the interaction of water mist with a fire plume was conducted using FLUENT software. The effects of different mist characteristics, such as droplet size and spray intensity, was considered in this simulation. The fire plume temperature history and velocity field were investigated. The results show that with a certain droplet size of water mist, the extinguishing time will be shorter when the mass flow of water increases, but this effect is no longer distinct after the mass flow of water mist increased to a critical value.
