AbstractWater mist is an effective fire suppression system in an enclosed space but is not as effective for open space fires where success depends on many parameters such as spray momentum and angle, and the distance between the fire and the water mist nozzle. This paper summarizes the results of experiments that compared the relative importance of water mist suppression mechanisms as well as the effectiveness of using additives in the water mist to suppress wood crib fire, heptane and diesel pool fires.
