AbstractWhen gaseous agents are used to extinguish fires, ventilation systems in the compartment must be shut down, otherwise the fire protection system can be expected to fail. Recent research [1] showed that water mist fire suppression systems were able to extinguish fires effectively with a definable degree of ventilation, such as with open doors or vents in a compartment, while gaseous agents could not work effectively under such ventilation conditions.
