Further smoke production measurements are reported. Smoke production per unit mass is deduced on the basis of exhaust stream CO2 concentration data. A matrix of fire suppression tests with water spray and CO2 has been carried out in the 6x6x6 ft fire enclosure and in a 2x2x2 ft scale model enclosure. A simple correlation indicative of a concise scaling rule was not expected and, in fact, did not result. But the data do constitute a basis for evolution of an empirically adjusted rational model whose intended application is extension of small scale or otherwise inexpensive test data to larger scale or relatively expensive situations.
