The aim of the work was to provide the analysis of the use of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) for modeling the stage of extinguishing gas discharge to a compartment, which is not taking into account in standard models. The CFD techniques may let to predict gas parameters in dependence of various conditions in a protected area. The investigations were carried out with software ANSYS Fluent 18.2, using Realizable k-ε model and SIMPLE algorithm. The numerical model was validated using experimental data. The subject of the study were standard and newly proposed inert gases. The results showed that adequate selection of input parameter let to simulate the gas discharge stage with high accuracy. The numerical results have a good agreement with the experimental results. The conclusions provide recommendations for the gas discharge prediction based on CFD technique.
