11. Experimental Study of Firebrand Transport
Topic: Homeland Security and Disaster Resilience
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 ...

12. Exposing Decking Assemblies to Continuous Wind-Driven Firebrand Showers
Topic: Homeland Security and Disaster Resilience
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 ...

13. Finite-element models of the National Fire Research Laboratory (NFRL)and modular support structure
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7886
Topic: Homeland Security and Disaster Resilience
Published: 10/26/2012
Author: Dat Duthinh
Abstract: This report documents the development of finite-element models (FEM) of the National Fire Research Laboratory (NFRL) and its modular support structure. The models enable a future user of the NFRL to add a potential test structure and perform thermal ...
