Abstract:

The first large-scale water spray injection smoke abatement system for open burning JP-4 fires, which was developed by the Air Force Weapons Laboratory, is described. The system was tested in the 75-foot diameter crashrescue training fire pits at Hill AFB, Utah. Significant reduction in visible smoke emissions was achieved without major adverse impact on the realism of training. Details of design are given. The effects of various system design and operating parameters are discussed.
