This numerical study aims at understanding the regimes of non-premixed hydrogen combustion in an enclosure with two vents. It has been demonstrated previously that the increase of flow rate in the enclosure with one upper vent changes a ¦re regime from well-ventilated, when all hydrogen is consumed by combustion within the enclosure, to an under-ventilated fire. The under-ventilated ¦re in the enclosure with one vent has been characterized by transition of internal jet ¦re intoexternal flame attached to the vent at moderate flow rates, to complete self-extinction of combustion within and without the enclosure at higher flow rates, and again to external flame at increased further flow rates. Fire in the enclosure with two vents demonstrates similar behavior withthe transition from well-ventilated ¦re to under-ventilated ¦re with the external flame regime, when the flame is attached to the upper vent, with the increase of the leak flow rate. However, with further increase of flow rate, the complete self-extinction is not observed and there is a very small area just above the hydrogen release pipe where combustion is sustained for the rest of the release.
