101. Ignition of Mulch by Firebrands in Wildland/Urban Interface (WUI) Fires
Published: Date unknown
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, John R Shields, Thomas George Cleary, Jiann C Yang
Abstract: Firebrands or embers are produced as trees and structures burn in wildland/urban interface (WUI) fires. Hot firebrands ultimately come to rest and may ignite fuels far removed from the fire, resulting in fire spread. It is believed that firebrand s ...

102. Mass and Size Distribution of Firebrands Generated From Burning Korean Pine (Pinus Koraiensis) Trees
Published: Date unknown
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Alexander Maranghides, John R Shields, William E. Mell, H Hayashi, Daisaku Nii
Abstract: The present study reports on a series of real scale fire experiments that were performed to determine the mass and size distribution of firebrands generated from Korean Pine (pinus koraiensis), a common conifer species indigenous to China, Japan, and ...

103. Microgravity Superagglomerates Produced by Silane and Acetylene
Published: Date unknown
Authors: Matthew F Bundy, George William Mulholland, Samuel L Manzello, Jiann C Yang, J HJ Scott
Abstract: A study of acetylene and silane diffusion flames was performed in normal gravity (1-g) and microgravity ([mu]-g) to determine the evolution of soot and silica agglomerates. The objective of this study was to understand the process of gas phase agglo ...

104. Numerical Modeling of Fire Spread Through Individual Trees and Shrubs
Published: Date unknown
Authors: William E. Mell, Samuel L Manzello, Alexander Maranghides
Abstract: Fire spread through suspended vegetation, such as tree crowns, is a basic component of wildland fires. Most models of fire spread do not resolve the burning of individual trees. Instead, fire spread through a forest canopy, representing a collectio ...

105. On the Use of Laser-Induced Ionization to Detect Soot Inception in Premixed Flames
Published: Date unknown
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, E J Lee, George William Mulholland
Abstract: Experimental measurements of laser-induced ionization were performed for ethene/air premixed flames operated near the soot inception point. Soot was ionized using a pulsed laser operated at 532 nm. The ionization signal was collected with a tungste ...

106. Real Fire Performance of Partition Assemblies: Insulated and Non-Insulated Assemblies
Published: Date unknown
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Richard George Gann, S R. Kukuck, Kuldeep R Prasad, Walter William Jones
Abstract: Two gypsum wall assemblies were exposed to intense real-scale compartment fires, from the time of ignition to beyond flashover. The construction of each assembly (2.44 m by 2.44 m) was identical, with the exception that one of the wall assemblies wa ...

107. The Effects of Nanostructure on the Stability of Nanocomposite Building Materials
Published: Date unknown
Authors: Marc R. Nyden, Samuel L Manzello, Richard H. Harris Jr.
Abstract: Thermoplastics and composites made from hydrocarbon polymers can improve the affordability, strength-to-weight ratio, and durability of manufactured products. Unfortunately, the use of these materials in buildings and vehicles is limited because of t ...

108. Wildland-Urban Interface Fires: Overview and Research Needs
Published: Date unknown
Authors: William E. Mell, Samuel L Manzello, Alexander Maranghides, Ronald George Rehm
Abstract: Wildfires that spread into wildland-urban interface (WUI) communities present a significant challenge on a number of fronts. In the United States the WUI accounts for a significant portion of wildfire suppression and risk mitigation costs. Research o ...
