||Efficacy of water spray protection against jet fires impinging on LPG storage tanks

||This report describes a full-scale study of the performance of a water spray system on an empty liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) tank under conditions of jet fire impingement resulting from a nearby release of LPG. Results show that a water deluge system typically found on an LPG storage tank cannot be relied upon to maintain a water film over the whole tank surface during an impinging jet fire. However, the deluge does have a significant mitigating effect compared with the undeluged case.
