Stark, G.W. and Card, J.F., 1964. CONTROL OF FIRES IN LARGE SPACES WITH INERT GAS AND FOAM PRODUCED BY A TURBO JET ENGINE (9) THE DISTRIBUTION OF GAS AND CONTROL OF FIRES IN A MULTI-STOREY BUILDING. Fire Research Notes 550
A series of tests were made to study the extinction of fires in a four-storey tower. The extinction of flaming combustion in an 850 ft^3 room with a 14 ft^2 open window requires the supply of inert gas containing 7 per cent oxygen at about 2500 ft^3/min. Fires on different floors could be controlled readily, when inert gas in sufficient quantity was introduced at ground level.
