31. EXPOSING GLAZING ASSEMBLIES TO FIREBRAND SHOWERS
Published: 5/16/2011
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka S. Suzuki, Yoshihiko Hayashi
Abstract: An experimental campaign was undertaken to determine vulnerabilities of glazing assemblies to firebrand bombardment using the NIST Dragon installed in the Building Research Institute‰s Fire Research Wind Tunnel Facility (FRWTF). Results of these exp ...

32. CHARACTERIZING FIREBRAND EXPOSURE DURING WILDLAND-URBAN INTERFACE FIRES.
Published: 2/2/2011
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Ethan I.D. Foote, John Liu
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% we ...

33. EXPOSING SIDING TREATMENTS AND WALLS FITTED WITH EAVES TO FIREBRAND SHOWERS
Published: 2/2/2011
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka S. Suzuki, Yoshihiko Hayashi
Abstract: An experimental campaign was undertaken to determine vulnerabilities of siding treatments and walls fitted with eaves to firebrand bombardment using the NIST Dragon installed in the Building Research Institute‰s Fire Research Wind Tunnel Facility (F ...

34. Development of Rapidly Deployable Instrumentation Packages for Real Time Data Acquisition in Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) Fires
Published: 8/1/2010
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Seul-Hyun Park, Thomas George Cleary
Abstract: In an effort to quantify structure ignition mechanisms during WUI fires, rapidly deployable instrumentation packages are being developed. For a structure under a WUI fire attack, the packages are designed to: (1) provide temporally resolved images o ...

35. Summary of Workshop on Research Needs for Full Scale Testing to Determine Vulnerabilities of Siding Treatments and Glazing Assemblies to Ignition by Firebrand Showers
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1111
Published: 7/12/2010
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka S. Suzuki
Abstract: Anecdotal evidence as well as post-fire damage assessment studies suggests that wind driven firebrand attack is responsible for the majority of structure ignitions in Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) fires. A unique experimental apparatus, known as th ...

36. QUANTIFYING WIND DRIVEN FIREBRAND PENETRATION INTO BUILDING VENTS USING FULL SCALE AND REDUDCED SCALE EXPERIMENTAL METHODS
Published: 7/5/2010
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Seul-Hyun Park, Sayaka S. Suzuki, John R Shields, Yoshihiko Hayashi
Abstract: The present investigation is aimed at extensively quantifying firebrand penetration through building vents using full scale tests that made use of the NIST Firebrand Generator (NIST Dragon) coupled to the Fire Research Wind Tunnel Facility (FRWTF) at ...

37. INVESTIGATING WIND DRIVEN FIREBRAND PENETRATION INTO BUILDING VENTS
Published: 5/17/2010
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka S. Suzuki, Yoshihiko Hayashi
Abstract: Evidence suggests that wind driven firebrand showers are responsible for a majority of structure ignitions in Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) fires in the USA and urban fires in Japan. This study is aimed at extensively quantifying firebrand penetrat ...

38. Using the NIST Dragon to Quantify Structure Vulnerabilities to Ignition from Firebrand Showers
Published: 5/4/2010
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Yoshihiko Hayashi
Abstract: Until recently, 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 ...

39. The wildland-urban interface fire problem - Current approaches and Research Needs
Published: 3/1/2010
Authors: William E. Mell, Samuel L Manzello, Alexander Maranghides, David T Butry, Ronald George Rehm
Abstract: Wildfires that spread into wildland-urban interface (WUI) communities present significant challenges on a number of fronts. In the United States the WUI accounts for a significant portion of wildland fire suppression and wildland fuel treatment costs ...
