11. FIREBRAND ACCUMLATION ZONES IN FRONT OF STRUCTURES IN WILDLAND-URBAN INTERFACE (WUI) FIRES
Published: 2/2/2015
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka Suzuki
Abstract: It is well known that as structures are exposed to wind, stagnation planes are produced around structures. Past work by the authors demonstrated for the first-time that wind-driven firebrand showers may accumulate in these stagnation planes. Whil ...

12. Firebrand Accumulation in Front of Structures in Large Outdoor Fires
Published: 12/10/2014
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka Suzuki
Abstract: The production of firebrands contributes to the spread of disastrous large outdoor fires. As structures are exposed to wind, stagnation planes are produced around structures. In a prior scoping study, the authors demonstrated that firebrands may ...

13. Ignition of Mulch beds exposed to firebrand showers
Published: 12/10/2014
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka Suzuki
Abstract: Mulch is commonly found near buildings and is a useful surrogate to study various fuels that may be present near buildings. To this end, mulch beds were exposed to continuous, wind-driven firebrand showers. These experiments build on our prior wo ...

14. Hardening Structures to Resist Wildland-Urban (WUI) Fire Exposures
Published: 11/14/2014
Author: Samuel L Manzello
Abstract: Wildfires that spread into communities, referred to as Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) fires, have destroyed communities throughout the world. In the USA, over 46 million homes in 70,000 communities are at risk of WUI fires [1-2]. Historically, fir ...

15. Ignition of Mulch Beds Exposed to Continuous-Wind Driven Firebrand Showers
Published: 8/3/2014
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka Suzuki, Koji Kagiya, Junichi Suzuki, Yoshihiko Hayashi
Abstract: A series of experiments were conducted to examine ignition of mulch beds to continuous, wind-driven firebrand showers. Shredded hardwood mulch, fitted in beds 1.2 m by 1.2 m with a thickness of 51 mm, was attached to a non-combustible re-entrant c ...

16. Enabling the Investigation of Structure Vulnerabilities to Wind-Driven Firebrand Showers in Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) Fires
Published: 6/1/2014
Author: Samuel L Manzello
Abstract: Wind-driven firebrand showers are a major cause of structural ignition in Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) fires. Past firebrand investigations have not been able to quantify the vulnerabilities of structures to ignition from firebrand showers, as i ...

17. Experimental Study of Firebrand Transport
Published: 6/1/2014
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Kuibin Zhou, Sayaka Suzuki
Abstract: The NIST Firebrand Generator (NIST Dragon) has been used to quantify the vulnerability of structures to ignition by firebrand attack. The Firebrand Generator is also as useful device to study firebrand transport, and has been used to validate fire ...

18. Exposing Decking Assemblies to Continuous Wind-Driven Firebrand Showers
Published: 6/1/2014
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka Suzuki
Abstract: A series of experiments were conducted to examine potential 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 d ...

19. Experimental Study of Firebrand Transport
Published: 5/27/2014
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Kuibin Zhou, Sayaka Suzuki
Abstract: The NIST Firebrand Generator (NIST Dragon) has been used to quantify the vulnerability of structures to ignition by firebrand attack. The Firebrand Generator is also a useful device to study firebrand transport, and has been used to validate firebr ...

20. Ignition of Fine Fuels Exposed to Firebrand Showers
Published: 5/27/2014
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka Suzuki, Junichi Suzuki, Koji Kagiya, Yoshihiko Hayashi
Abstract: Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) fires have caused significant destruction to communities throughout the world. WUI fires continue to burn in the USA; most recently in Texas in 2011, Colorado, and California in 2012, and Arizona, Colorado, and Califo ...
