ABSTRACT

The aim of the presented work was the development and testing of the code enabling numerical simulation of the dust explosion suppression process. The obtained results were compared with those received from the experiments. Corn starch was used as the explosive dust and water as the suppressing material. A good agreement was found between the results obtained from numerical simulations and from the experiment.
