|Title:||Firebrand Generation Data Obtained from a Full Scale Structure Burn|
|Published:||December 05, 2011|
|Abstract:||A full-scale, proof-of-concept experiment was conducted to investigate firebrand production from a burning structure. In this experiment, NIST researchers were invited to set up instrumentation during a structure burn down. As the structure burned, firebrands were collected using an array of water pans. In addition, structure components, namely wall and re-entrant corner assemblies made simply from oriented standard board (OSB) attached to wood studs, were burned to collect firebrand data from components to compare both results under wind. Results of all of these firebrand measurements are presented here.|
