    Abstract

    This paper outlines a program to ultimately develop design standards for an onboard aircraft cabin water spray system. Main emphasis is on the acquisition of technical data to be used as input into a benefit analysis program. A disbenefit study being conducted by an airframe manufacturer is outlined. Full-scale tests of an onboard cabin water spray system are detailed, and how the data obtained would be used in a benefit analysis program is explained. Three different scenarios were tested in a 707 narrow body fuselage and comparison data with and without water spray are presented. The benefit analysis program to be used is explained and an example is given.
