1. 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 ...

2. CHARACTERISTICS OF HEAT FLUX AND FIREBRAND GENERATION DATA OBTAINED FROM A FULL SCALE STRUCTURE BURN
Published: 5/16/2011
Authors: Sayaka S. Suzuki, Samuel L Manzello
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, ...

3. 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 ...

4. 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 ...

5. Determining Ignition Regime Maps of Building Materials Exposed to Continuous Wind-Driven Firebrand Showers
Published: 12/5/2011
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka S. Suzuki
Abstract: Firebrands are a major cause of structural ignition in urban fires in Japan and Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) fires in the USA, yet little research has been conducted to investigate the ignition of building materials to wind driven firebrand showers ...

6. Determining Structure Vulnerabilities to Firebrand Showers in Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) Fires
Published: 10/10/2011
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Seul-Hyun Park, Sayaka S. Suzuki, John R Shields, Yoshihiko Hayashi
Abstract: 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 Generator (NIST ...

7. 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 ...

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. EXPOSING GLAZING ASSEMBLIES TO FIREBRAND SHOWERS
Published: 5/16/2011
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka S. Suzuki, Yoshihiko Hayashi
Abstract: An experimental campaign was undertaken to determine vulnerabilities of glazing assemblies to firebrand bombardment using the NIST Dragon installed in the Building Research Institute‰s Fire Research Wind Tunnel Facility (FRWTF). Results of these exp ...

10. EXPOSING SIDING TREATMENTS AND WALLS FITTED WITH EAVES TO FIREBRAND SHOWERS
Published: 2/2/2011
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka S. Suzuki, Yoshihiko Hayashi
Abstract: An experimental campaign was undertaken to determine vulnerabilities of siding treatments and walls fitted with eaves to firebrand bombardment using the NIST Dragon installed in the Building Research Institute‰s Fire Research Wind Tunnel Facility (F ...
