This paper describes a relatively simple indirect model for the parametric water injection process to extinguish diesel fuel fires in underground mine diesel refueling areas, and defines the critical spray conditions for achieving rapid quenching of the pool fire. While the model is consistent with the pool fire data obtained to date, the PRL studies are continuing with more complex pool fire scenarios. It remains to be seen if this simple parametric approach applies to these future fire tests. to extinguish diesel fuel fires.
