Development of CFD Fire Suppression Model for Industrial Applications

Presented by Yi Wang, PhD, Group Manager – Fire Dynamics, FM Global, Research Division

The presentation gives an overview of recent development and validation of numerical models towards modeling fire growth and suppression for industrial fires. The models are integrated into FireFOAM code, an open source code based on OpenFOAM libraries. The key sub-models include: turbulent combustion, pyrolysis, flame heat transfer, spray injection and transport, water film flow, as well as their interactions. The validations of this newly developed CFD code will be presented. In addition, the recent applications of the CFD code to two industrial fire protection scenarios will be highlighted: 1) effect of sloped ceiling on sprinkler activation and spray pattern, 2) ceiling level sprinkler protections for high storage roll papers. The current capabilities and limitations of the CFD model will be discussed through the application examples to emphasize the proper usage of CFD model for technically sound fire protection engineering.
