1. 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 ...

2. 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 ...

3. 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 ...

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 ...

6. 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, ...

7. 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 ...

8. Ignition of Mulch Beds Exposed to Continuous-Wind Driven Firebrand Showers
Published: 8/3/2014
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka Suzuki, Koji Kagiya, Junichi Suzuki, Yoshihiko Hayashi
Abstract: A series of experiments were conducted to examine ignition of mulch beds to continuous, wind-driven firebrand showers. Shredded hardwood mulch, fitted in beds 1.2 m by 1.2 m with a thickness of 51 mm, was attached to a non-combustible re-entrant c ...

9. Experimental Study of Firebrand Transport
Published: 6/1/2014
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Kuibin Zhou, Sayaka Suzuki
Abstract: The NIST Firebrand Generator (NIST Dragon) has been used to quantify the vulnerability of structures to ignition by firebrand attack. The Firebrand Generator is also as useful device to study firebrand transport, and has been used to validate fire ...

10. Exposing Decking Assemblies to Continuous Wind-Driven Firebrand Showers
Published: 6/1/2014
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka Suzuki
Abstract: A series of experiments were conducted to examine potential 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 d ...
