AbstractThere are concerns over long-throw sprinkler installation in halls with high ceilings which are likely to store large amount of combustible materials. These concerns will be addressed in this paper. At the moment, it is unknown whether such sprinkler installation can protect high-ceiling halls which store large amount of combustibles. The concept should be further explored with in-depth research through full-scale burning experiments with big fires.
