Numerical investigation of localization and suppression of thermal decomposition of forest combustible materials using specialized water supply

Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


The danger of forest fires and their large-scale consequences are becoming ever more complex problems for mankind every year. The results of numerical studies of heat transfer processes under suppressing the thermal decomposition reaction of forest combustible materials by films and groups of water droplets are presented. We used forest combustible materials, typical for the Siberian region. We have established the relationship between the dimensions of the heated near-surface layer of the material and the thickness of the film layer of the liquid that evaporated when the thermal decomposition reaction was suppressed in forest combustible materials. Typical times of suppression of the thermal decomposition reaction of typical forest combustible materials are given when the water film on the surface evaporates. The influence of the mutual arrangement of droplets on the surface of the forest combustible material and the temperature of the outer vapor-gas mixture on the times of suppression of its pyrolysis is revealed. The results can be used to develop technologies for extinguishing fires, containment of flame sources and combustion front.
