A computational study of the effect of cross wind on the flow of fire fighting agent
MetadataShow full item record
This research will be used to evaluate the feasibility of robotically, or remotecontrolled firefighting nozzles aboard air-capable ships. A numerical model was constructed and analyzed, using the program CFD-ACE, of a fire hose stream being deflected by the influence of a crosswind, tailwind, or headwind. The model is intended to predict the reach of the fire hose stream, indicate the distribution pattern, and estimate the volume of fire fighting agent available at the end of the stream. Preliminary results for a two fluid cross flow model have been obtained.
