2. Firebrand Generated from a Full-Scale Structure Burning Under Well-Controlled Laboratory Conditions
Published: 12/16/2013
Authors: Sayaka S. Suzuki, Adam Brown, Samuel L Manzello, Junichi Suzuki, Yoshihiko Hayashi
Abstract: Firebrand production from a real-scale structure under well-controlled laboratory conditions was investigated. The structure was fabricated using wood studs and oriented strand board (OSB). A sofa was placed inside the structure and this sofa was ...

3. Experimentally Simulating Continuous Wind Driven Firebrand Showers in Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) Fires: Overview of the NIST Firebrand Generator (NIST Dragon) Technology
Published: 9/27/2013
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka S. Suzuki
Abstract: An experimental apparatus, known as the NIST full scale continuous feed Firebrand Generator (the NIST continuous feed Dragon) is presented. The experiment device presented in this paper is a scaled up version of the recently developed bench scale ...

4. FIREBRANDS GENERATED FROM FULL-SCALE BUILDING COMPONENTS AND STRUCTURES UNDER AN APPLIED WIND-FIELD
Published: 6/24/2013
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka Suzuki, Junichi Suzuki, Yoshihiko Hayashi
Abstract: Firebrand production from a real-scale structure under well-controlled laboratory conditions was investigated. The structure was fabricated using wood studs and oriented strand board (OSB). A sofa was placed inside the structure and ignited using ...

6. Development and Characterization of Continuous Feed Firebrand Generator
Published: 5/6/2013
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka Suzuki
Abstract: Evidence suggests that wind driven firebrand showers are a major cause of structural ignition in Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) fires. While firebrands have been researched for over four decades, prior studies have focused mainly on how far firebra ...

7. Firebrand Generation from Building Components with Cedar Siding
Published: 5/6/2013
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka Suzuki, Yoshihiko Hayashi
Abstract: Fires in the wildland-urban interface (WUI) have been a large problem not only in the USA, but all over the world. From a pragmatic point of view, the WUI fire problem can be seen as a structure ignition problem [1]. It is believed that the structu ...

8. Firebrand Generation from a Full-Scale Structure
Published: 5/6/2013
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka Suzuki, Yoshihiko Hayashi
Abstract: Firebrands are a critical mechanism of fire spread in large outdoor fires, such as urban fires in Japan and WUI fires in Australia, Southern Europe, and the USA. Firebrands have been studied for some time however there are few studies on generation ...

9. Vulnerability of Decking Assemblies to Continuous Firebrand Shower
Published: 5/6/2013
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka Suzuki
Abstract: In WUI fires, decking assemblies have been observed to be an ignition vulnerability based on post-fire damage surveys. The Office of the State Fire Marshall (OFSM) in California adopted the test method known as State Fire Marshall (SFM) STANDARD 12 ...

10. The Performance of Concrete Tile and Terracotta Tile Roofing Assemblies Exposed to Wind-Driven Firebrand Showers
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1794
Published: 3/28/2013
Author: Samuel L Manzello
Abstract: Concrete tile roofing assemblies (flat and profiled tile) as well as terracotta tile roofing assemblies (flat and profiled tile) commonly used in the USA, Australia, and elsewhere were exposed to wind-driven firebrand showers with an average ma ...
