This study uses the correlated-k (c-k) and Mie scattering theory to evaluate absorption and scattering properties of participating media for fire suppression environments. In this approach the irregular spectral distribution of the radiative properties is reordered into cumulative distribution functions on a narrow band basis increasing the speed of property evaluation when compared to line-by-line calculations. The spectral properties are determined from the HITEMP database for carbon dioxide and water vapor, along with Mie and Rayleigh scattering theories for water droplets and soot particles, respectively. Results are presented for radiative heat transfer in a 1D domain for several mixtures and show that the attenuation of the radiation is highly sensitive to the water droplet size, mass loading and soot particle concentration.
