Computational Modelling of a Novel Fire Extinguisher Design
A high fidelity computational modelling of novel fire extinguisher designs is addressed in this work. The fire extinguisher works on the condensed aerosol particles acting as the fire extinguishing agent. The study is aimed at computationally predicting the various multi-species transport variables inside the extinguisher and the various critical temperature zone and regions in the extinguisher based on the computational results. The results computed here could serve as a basis for testing and certification for improvising the experimental design for the extinguisher and will provide the ways for the design cycle of the product.
