61. Comparison Testing Protocol for Firebrand Penetration through Building Vents: Summary of BRI/NIST Full Scale and NIST Reduced Scale Results
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1659
Published: 1/25/2010
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Seul-Hyun Park, John R Shields, Yoshihiko Hayashi, Sayaka Suzuki
Abstract: An ASTM task group on vents, organized within Subcommittee E05.14.06, External Fire Exposures, has developed a reduced scale test method (not presently a standard) aimed at evaluating the ability of vents to resist firebrand intrusion into attic and ...

63. Investigation on the Ability of Glowing Firebrands Deposited Within Crevices to Ignite Common Building Materials
Published: 8/3/2009
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Seul-Hyun Park, Thomas George Cleary
Abstract: A series of experiments were conducted to determine the range of conditions that glowing firebrands may ignite common building materials. The surface temperature of glowing firebrands burning under different applied air flow was quantified using an ...

65. DEVELOPING RAPID RESPONSE INSTRUMENTATION PACKAGES TO QUANTIFY STRUCTURE IGNITION MECHANISMS IN WILDLAND-URBAN INTERFACE (WUI) FIRES
Published: 3/17/2009
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Seul-Hyun Park, Thomas George Cleary, John R Shields
Abstract: Rapidly deployable instrumentation packages are being developed to be used during actual WUI fires to quantify structure ignition mechanisms. The packages are being designed to be placed near a given structure in the WUI and will provide video imagi ...
