Developing computationally efficient approaches for modelling radiative heat transfer of soot and evaporating water droplets in FireFOAM

Supervisor: Professor Jennifer Wen and Dr Siaka Dembele
PhD Student: Ivan Sikic

Various weighted-sum-of-gray-gas (WSGG) models have been implemented in FireFOAM. Further verification and validation of the implemented models will be carried out concerning angular discretization and pool fire predictions. Work is ongoing to address the radiative properties of evaporating water droplets during fire suppression.
