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, firebrands were collected using an array of water pans. The size and mass distribution of firebrands collected from the burning structure were compared to those measured from vegetation as well as historical firebrand investigations.
