INVESTIGATING TILE ROOFING ASSEMBLY PERFORMANCE EXPOSED TO CONTINUOUS FIREBRAND EXPOSURE

Abstract

Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) fires have become a problem of great concern worldwide. Japan does not have a specific problem of fires spreading from the wildlands to communities, such as the WUI fire problem [1]. After large earthquakes in Japan, many fires may simultaneously occur, leading to severe fire spread within urban areas [1]. Once a wildland fire researches a community and ignites structures, structure-structure fire spread via firebrand generation occurs in the same manner as in post-earthquake fires [1].
