Test Programme F3 - Confined Jet and Pool Fires - Technical Report for Test JF12SD
BFETS Phase 2
SINTEF Energy - Norwegian Fire Research Laboratory (NBL) has the task to carry out a series of fire tests with confined jet and pool fires, according to the test programme F3 of Blast and Fire Engineering for Topside Structures. This report is for jet fire test JF12SD.
Jet fire test JF12SD represents a vertical release of condensate (a liquid fraction from an oil refinery) at low level in a 415 m3 enclosure with a 5.5 x 2.81 m opening at one end. The general fire behaviour such as flame geometry and characteristics, temperature field and heat load from naturally ventilated fires was studied. The main purpose of jet fire test JF12SD was to investigate the deluge effect on this type of fire with a short pre-burn time.
The general fire behaviour such as flame geometry and characteristics, temperature field and heat load from this naturally ventilated fire was studied.
The fuel release rate was 0.95 kg/s, with a release pressure of 12.2 bar, keeping the ventilation opening as in JF12. No equivalence ratio is calculated for this experiment.
This technical report includes description of the test rig, the experimental details and a set of curves from the measured parameters.
