AbstractExtinguishment experiments in a three-storey test building are described. Inert gas, supplied by a high efficiency combustion device with water injection cooling, behaved as predicted theoretically. The high expansion foam was found to migrate most readily from enclosure to enclosure (a total of eight in succession) without undue breakdown. It is shown that the movement of foam, even in complex situations, is also largely predictable.
