Abstract
This report deals with flame extinguishment of liquid and solid fuels in an experiment construction widely known as Burner Cup. The fuels are heptan, methanol and PMMA.

According to a theory called fire point theory developed by Rasbash also further developed by Beyler the extinguish concentration increasing when applied external flux increases. Experiments have earlier been done by Magee and Reitz to measure the critical water application rate as a
function of the applied external radiant flux for four thermoplastic materials. No earlier experiments have been done to investigate gaseous agents concentration as a function of the applied external radiant flux.

This report describes experiments done to investigate if any changes in... (More)
This report deals with flame extinguishment of liquid and solid fuels in an experiment construction widely known as Burner Cup. The fuels are heptan, methanol and PMMA.

According to a theory called fire point theory developed by Rasbash also further developed by Beyler the extinguish concentration increasing when applied external flux increases. Experiments have earlier been done by Magee and Reitz to measure the critical water application rate as a

This report describes experiments done to investigate if any changes in agent concentration are necessary to attain extinction when external radiant flux is applied. The flame extinguishing agents used is gasiform (Halon, two Halon alternative N2 , CO2). The agents are mixed with torrid air before assaulting the flames. (Swedish) (Less)
