1. A dimensional analysis on firebrand penetration through a mesh screen
Published: 11/15/2015
Authors: Jiann C Yang, Samuel L Manzello
Abstract: A dimensional analysis on firebrand penetration through a mesh screen was carried out to provide a framework to correlate a limited set of experimental data previously reported by Manzello et al. (2011). Two dimensionless variables were obtained. ...

2. Full-Scale Experimental Investigation to Quantify Building Component Ignition Vulnerability from Mulch Beds Attacked by Firebrand Showers
Published: 10/8/2015
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka Suzuki, Daisaku Nii
Abstract: Detailed, systematic experiments that demonstrate if certain mulch types may ignite building elements have not been demonstrated. To this end, this paper outlines a series of experiments conducted with various mulch types placed adjacent to realis ...

3. Summary of Workshop on Structure Ignition in Wildland- Urban Interface (WUI) Fires
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1198
Published: 9/18/2015
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Steve Quarles
Abstract: A workshop entitled Structure Ignition in Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) Fires was held on June 18-19, 2015 in Anaheim, CA. The workshop was sponsored by ASTM International Committee E05, and was under the direction of Dr. Samuel L. Manzello of th ...

4. Ignition of Wood Fencing Assemblies Exposed to Continuous-Wind Driven Firebrand Showers
Published: 7/30/2015
Authors: Sayaka Suzuki, Erik L Johnsson, Alexander Maranghides, Samuel L Manzello
Abstract: A series of experiments were conducted to examine ignition of wood fencing assemblies subjected to continuous, wind-driven firebrand showers. Specifically, Western Red Cedar and Redwood fencing assemblies were exposed to continuous, wind-driven ...

5. BUILDING COMPONENT IGNTION FROM MULCH BEDS IGNITED BY FIREBRAND SHOWERS
Published: 5/16/2015
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka Suzuki, Daisaku Nii
Abstract: Wildfires that spread into communities, referred to as Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) fires, have destroyed communities throughout the world. The 2007 Southern California Fire forced 300,000 people to evacuate, destroyed over one thousand structur ...

6. DEVELOPMENT OF REDUCED-SCALE EXPERIMENTAL FACILITY TO STUDY FIREBRAND IGNTION
Published: 5/16/2015
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka Suzuki
Abstract: Wildfires that spread into communities, referred to as Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) fires, have destroyed communities throughout the USA. The best way forward to address the WUI fire problem is hardening of structures [1]. Without standard labo ...

8. EFFECT OF SIDING TREATMENT ON FIREBRAND PRODUCTION FROM BUILDING COMPONENTS
Published: 2/2/2015
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka Suzuki
Abstract: Wildfires which spread into a community, commonly known as Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) fires, is a significant problem all over the world. Post-fire investigations have suggested that firebrands are the major cause of structure ignitions. Yet, ...

9. FIREBRAND ACCUMLATION ZONES IN FRONT OF STRUCTURES IN WILDLAND-URBAN INTERFACE (WUI) FIRES
Published: 2/2/2015
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka Suzuki
Abstract: It is well known that as structures are exposed to wind, stagnation planes are produced around structures. Past work by the authors demonstrated for the first-time that wind-driven firebrand showers may accumulate in these stagnation planes. Whil ...

10. Hardening Structures to Resist Wildland-Urban (WUI) Fire Exposures
Published: 11/14/2014
Author: Samuel L Manzello
Abstract: Wildfires that spread into communities, referred to as Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) fires, have destroyed communities throughout the world. In the USA, over 46 million homes in 70,000 communities are at risk of WUI fires [1-2]. Historically, fir ...
