Abstract

The purpose of this investigation is to examine the feasibility of using computed tomography to evaluate the predictive capabilities of fire models. In this pursuit, we have analyzed data from both laboratory- and computer-generated plumes in order to determine the number of line-of-sight measurements, the detector topology, and the temporal resulution needed to obtain accurate reconstructions of component concentrations in fire atmospheres.
