Estimation of pollution by fire extinguishing water

Abstract : Industrial fires may be violent and significant and involve the combustion of large quantities of substances which could be hazardous. Therefore the environmental impact could be significant. Water is mainly used to extinguish industrial fires. Water is deployed to capture the energy released by combustion and consequently the water will be loaded with pollutants such as HCI and HCN. The project O2FEU is interested in analysing the life cycle of water in industrial fire fighting. This water présents a source of pollution for soil and subsoil. The project consists in studying the fate of run-off waters in environment using mathematical models. The aim of this work is the development of a mathematical model. This model will be used to détermine the infiltration of the contaminated water in soil.
