Rooms 356-357 (New Orleans Convention Center)

Topical 1: 42nd Loss Prevention Symposium (T1)

#120 - Advances in Fire and Explosion Suppression (T1001)
Fires and explosions have been suppressed or extinguished by chemical agents such as water, gaseous agents (halons) and salts. The mechanism of extinguishment is related to properties of the agent. Papers for this session should address advances in fire and explosion suppression methods excluding automatic sprinklers. Papers that address new agent materials, new delivery systems, new or unique applications and new insights into the science of the suppression process are invited.
