Abstract:

Full-scale tests were conducted under fixed fire conditions employing air-aspiration foam and dry powder dispensing equipment in which six different foam agents and three different dry chemical powders were evaluated, both alone and in combination. The time required to control circular pool fires of 40, 60, and 80 feet in diameter, containing an obstacle and a three-dimensional fire, was determined.
