|Title:||Firebrand Generation from a Full-Scale Structure|
|Published:||May 06, 2013|
|Abstract:||Firebrands are a critical mechanism of fire spread in large outdoor fires, such as urban fires in Japan and WUI fires in Australia, Southern Europe, and the USA. Firebrands have been studied for some time however there are few studies on generation of firebrands [1-3]. It is believed that in WUI fires, the structures themselves may be a large source of firebrands, in addition to the vegetation. Yet, due to lack of quantitative information available on production of firebrands from structures, it cannot be determined if firebrand production from structures is a significant source of firebrands in WUI fires.
