Evaluating Pool Fire Severity and the Cooling Effect of Local Water Spray Using a Continuous Plate Thermometer
IAFSS - The International Association for Fire Safety Science : proceedings
A methodology was developed to evaluate the maximum hazard posed to the structure of a process facility due to a large flammable liquid pool fire. The hazard evaluation was based on the vertical heat flux profile, which was measured with specially designed instrumentation based on the plate thermometer concept. Testing focused on ethanol, which produced a maximum net heat flux of ~140 kW/m 2 . The effectiveness of various water spray schemes was then evaluated on the relative reduction in thedoi:10.3801/iafss.fss.10-133 fatcat:747i7hkb2jgz3iemamh53mpohm
