21. Summary of Full Scale Experiments to Determine Vulnerabilities of Building Components to Ignition by Firebrand Showers
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1126
Published: 1/2/2012
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka S. Suzuki, Yoshihiko Hayashi
Abstract: Wind driven firebrand showers are a major cause of structural ignition in Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) fires in the USA and urban fires in Japan. For over 40 years, past firebrand studies have focused on understanding how far firebrands fly (s ...

22. Determining Ignition Regime Maps of Building Materials Exposed to Continuous Wind-Driven Firebrand Showers
Published: 12/5/2011
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka S. Suzuki
Abstract: Firebrands are a major cause of structural ignition in urban fires in Japan and Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) fires in the USA, yet little research has been conducted to investigate the ignition of building materials to wind driven firebrand showers ...

23. Firebrand Generation Data Obtained from a Full Scale Structure Burn
Published: 12/5/2011
Authors: Sayaka S. Suzuki, Samuel L Manzello
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, ...

24. On the Development and Characterization of a Reduced Scale Continuous Feed Firebrand Generator
Published: 11/1/2011
Authors: Sayaka S. Suzuki, Samuel L Manzello
Abstract: A new experimental apparatus, known as the NIST Reduced Scale Continuous Feed Firebrand Generator (the NIST continuous feed Baby Dragon) is presented for the first time. This version of the Firebrand Generator is based upon the NIST Dragon, the only ...

25. The new and improved NIST Dragon‰s LAIR (Lofting and Ignition Research) Facility: Coupling the Reduced Scale Continuous Feed Firebrand Generator to Bench Scale Wind Tunnel
Published: 10/12/2011
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka S. Suzuki
Abstract: The present investigation was undertaken to construct a new and improved Dragon‰s LAIR facility. This entailed removing the NIST Baby Dragon from the wind tunnel facility and inserting the new and improved NIST continuous feed Baby Dragon. The uni ...

26. Determining Structure Vulnerabilities to Firebrand Showers in Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) Fires
Published: 10/10/2011
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Seul-Hyun Park, Sayaka S. Suzuki, John R Shields, Yoshihiko Hayashi
Abstract: Attempting to experimentally quantify the vulnerabilities of structures to ignition from firebrand showers has remained elusive. The coupling of a two unique facilities has begun to unravel this difficult problem. The NIST Firebrand Generator (NIST ...
