1. 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 ...

2. Enabling the Investigation of Structure Vulnerabilities to Wind-Driven Firebrand Showers in Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) Fires
Published: 6/1/2014
Author: Samuel L Manzello
Abstract: Wind-driven firebrand showers are a major cause of structural ignition in Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) fires. Past firebrand investigations have not been able to quantify the vulnerabilities of structures to ignition from firebrand showers, as i ...

3. 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 ...

4. 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 ...

6. Ignition of Fine Fuels Exposed to Firebrand Showers
Published: 5/27/2014
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka Suzuki, Junichi Suzuki, Koji Kagiya, Yoshihiko Hayashi
Abstract: Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) fires have caused significant destruction to communities throughout the world. WUI fires continue to burn in the USA; most recently in Texas in 2011, Colorado, and California in 2012, and Arizona, Colorado, and Califo ...

8. 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 ...
