61. On the Use of a Firebrand Generator to Investigate the Ignition of Structures in Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) Fires.
Published: 9/1/2007
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, John R Shields, Jiann C Yang, Yoshihiko Hayashi, Daisaku Nii
Abstract: An experimental apparatus has been constructed to generate a controlled and repeatable size and mass distribution of glowing firebrands. The present study reports on a series of experiments conducted in order to characterize the performance of this f ...

62. Firebrand Generation From Burning Vegetation
Published: 2/20/2007
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Alexander Maranghides, William E. Mell
Abstract: A series of real scale fire experiments were performed to determine the size and mass distribution of firebrands generated from Douglas-Fir (pseudotsuga menziesii) trees. The experiments were performed in the Large Scale Fire Laboratory (LFL) at NIS ...

65. On the Ignition of Fuel Beds by Firebrands.
Published: 12/1/2006
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Thomas George Cleary, John R Shields, Jiann C Yang
Abstract: An experimental apparatus has been built to investigate the ignition of fuel beds as a result of impact with burning firebrands. The apparatus allowed for the ignition and deposition of both single and multiple firebrands onto the target fuel bed. Th ...

66. Firebrand Production From Burning Vegetation
Published: 11/30/2006
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Alexander Maranghides, William E. Mell, Thomas George Cleary, Jiann C Yang
Abstract: A series of real scale fire experiments were performed to determine the size and mass distribution of firebrands generated from Douglas-Fir (pseudotsuga menziesii) trees. The results of the real scale fire experiments were used to determine firebran ...

67. An Experimental Investigation of Gypsum Board Partition Assembly Performance Under Real Fire Exposures
Published: 5/1/2006
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Richard George Gann
Abstract: The present paper compares the responses of wall-size partition assmeblies, composed of either type X or type C gypsum wallboaerd panels over steel studs, when each were exposed to an intense room fire. The exposurs lasted from the time of ignition t ...

70. Ignition of Vegetation and Mulch by Firebrands in Wildland/Urban Interface (WUI) Fires.
Published: 11/13/2005
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Thomas George Cleary, John R Shields, 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 sho ...
