Consequent to abandoning the use of halon in total flooding gas protection systems, clean agents are used for fire control. It is difficult to carry out so many physical experiments on assessing their performance. Numerical modeling is an effective tool and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a good method for studying the interaction with the fire-induced flow. Thermal radiation is a key point in modeling such process and the importance of it will be discussed in this paper.
