11. 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 ...

12. 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 ...

13. 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 ...

14. 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 ...

15. EXPOSING WOOD DECKING ASSEMBLIES TO CONTINUOUS WIND-DRIVEN FIREBRAND SHOWERS
Published: 1/28/2013
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka S. Suzuki
Abstract: Sections of wood decks (1.2 m by 1.2 m) were constructed and attached to a re-entrant corner assembly. The deck/re-entrant corner assembly was then exposed to continuous, wind-driven firebrand bombardment generated by the newly developed NIST ful ...

16. Exposing Wood Decking Assemblies to Continuous Wind-Driven Firebrand Showers
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1778
Published: 12/12/2012
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka S. Suzuki
Abstract: A series of experiments were conducted to determine vulnerabilities of wood decks to continuous, wind-driven firebrand showers. Sections of wood decks (1.2 m by 1.2 m) were constructed and attached to a re-entrant corner assembly. The deck/re ...

17. Summary of Workshop on Fire-Structure Interaction and Urban and Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) Fires Operation Tomodachi: Fire Research
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1137
Published: 9/28/2012
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka S. Suzuki, Tokiyoshi Yamada
Abstract: Dr. Samuel L. Manzello of NIST‰s Engineering Laboratory (EL) served as the USA side organizer of the 2nd Japan-USA workshop held in Tokyo, Japan from July 1 to July 4, 2012. This workshop was known as ,Operation Tomodachi - Fire ResearchŠ. Tomo ...

18. Firebrand Generation Data Obtained from a Full Scale Structure Burn
Published: 7/27/2012
Authors: Sayaka S. Suzuki, Samuel L Manzello, Matthew Lage, George Laing
Abstract: A full scale, proof-of-concept experiment was conducted to investigate firebrand production from a burning structure. In this experiment, NIST researchers were invited to set up instrumentation during a structure burn down. As the structure burned, ...

19. Enabling the Study of Structure Vulnerabilities to Ignition from Wind Driven Firebrand Showers: A Summary of Experimental Results
Published: 7/18/2012
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka S. Suzuki, 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 ...

20. The Size and Mass Distribution of Firebrands collected from Ignited Building Components Exposed to Wind
Published: 7/6/2012
Authors: Sayaka S. Suzuki, Samuel L Manzello, Yoshihiko Hayashi
Abstract: Wildfires that spread into communities, commonly referred to as Wildland-Urban Interface Fires (WUI), are a significant international problem. Post-fire damage studies have suggested for some time that firebrands are a significant cause of structure ...
