12. Development and Characterization of Continuous Feed Firebrand Generator
Published: 5/6/2013
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka Suzuki
Abstract: Evidence suggests that wind driven firebrand showers are a major cause of structural ignition in Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) fires. While firebrands have been researched for over four decades, prior studies have focused mainly on how far firebra ...

13. Firebrand Generation from Building Components with Cedar Siding
Published: 5/6/2013
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka Suzuki, Yoshihiko Hayashi
Abstract: Fires in the wildland-urban interface (WUI) have been a large problem not only in the USA, but all over the world. From a pragmatic point of view, the WUI fire problem can be seen as a structure ignition problem [1]. It is believed that the structu ...

14. Firebrand Generation from a Full-Scale Structure
Published: 5/6/2013
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka Suzuki, Yoshihiko Hayashi
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 ...

15. Vulnerability of Decking Assemblies to Continuous Firebrand Shower
Published: 5/6/2013
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka Suzuki
Abstract: In WUI fires, decking assemblies have been observed to be an ignition vulnerability based on post-fire damage surveys. The Office of the State Fire Marshall (OFSM) in California adopted the test method known as State Fire Marshall (SFM) STANDARD 12 ...

16. The Performance of Concrete Tile and Terracotta Tile Roofing Assemblies Exposed to Wind-Driven Firebrand Showers
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1794
Published: 3/28/2013
Author: Samuel L Manzello
Abstract: Concrete tile roofing assemblies (flat and profiled tile) as well as terracotta tile roofing assemblies (flat and profiled tile) commonly used in the USA, Australia, and elsewhere were exposed to wind-driven firebrand showers with an average ma ...

17. EXPOSING WOOD DECKING ASSEMBLIES TO CONTINUOUS WIND-DRIVEN FIREBRAND SHOWERS
Published: 1/28/2013
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka S. Suzuki
Abstract: Sections of wood decks (1.2 m by 1.2 m) were constructed and attached to a re-entrant corner assembly. The deck/re-entrant corner assembly was then exposed to continuous, wind-driven firebrand bombardment generated by the newly developed NIST ful ...

18. Exposing Wood Decking Assemblies to Continuous Wind-Driven Firebrand Showers
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1778
Published: 12/12/2012
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka S. Suzuki
Abstract: A series of experiments were conducted to determine vulnerabilities of wood decks to continuous, wind-driven firebrand showers. Sections of wood decks (1.2 m by 1.2 m) were constructed and attached to a re-entrant corner assembly. The deck/re ...

20. Characterizing Firebrand Exposure from Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) Fires: Results from the 2007 Angora Fire
Published: 9/22/2012
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Ethan I.D. Foote
Abstract: This study examines the size distribution and other characteristics of firebrand exposure during the 2007 Angora Fire, a severe Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) fire in California. Of the 401 houses that received direct interface fire exposure 61% wer ...
