High expansion foam has been applied to two types of fire. The action of flames and radiated heat on the foam has been observed. Rates of foam application to enable the fires to be controlled, and eventually extinguished, have been measured. Critical foam application rates for each type of fire have been obtained. The fires used in the experiments can be used as standard of their types for comparing the relative efficiencies of high expansion foam compounds.
