A dynamic large-eddy simulation methodology is applied to a simplified water-spray fire
suppression system to investigate droplet effects on a buoyant gas flame. A hybrid Eulerian-Lagrangian
approach is employed for the gas-liquid system. Dynamic subgrid models are included to capture the
local and unsteady interactions between the two phases. The effectiveness of changing spray angles on
combustion suppression has been investigated. The drag effects of droplets cause significant changes
to the flow and flame structures. Dense droplets, in particular, can cut through the reaction zones,
causing flame extinction. The high temperature regions associated with reaction zones are suppressed
by the spray droplets in all cases.
