Heselden, A.J. and Hinkley, P.L., 1963. MEASUREMENTS OF THE TRANSMISSION OF RADIATION THROUGH WATER SPRAYS. Fire Research Notes 520
This report described measurements of the transmission of radiation through water sprays from two typed of nozzle. The transmission for a nozzle water pressure of 50 lb in^-2 was appreciably lower than that for a pressure of 6.5 lb in^-2 even for comparable water flows. A comparison of the results with those of Seekamp (4) and Schuler (5) suggests that transmission depends markedly on nozzle design and that with certain nozzles a water curtain of low transmission could be produced for water flows comparable with those of sprinkler installation.
