|Title: ||Some simplified theories about mass Fires|
|Authors: ||Western, A.M.|
|Issue Date: ||Dec-1966|
|Publisher: ||Home Office Scientific Advisers's Branch|
|Abstract: ||In connection with Project FLAMBEAU it was thought useful to make a
collection of simple theories relating to mass fires. The list is far
from exhaustive; in particular attention has been concentrated on the
conditions at peak; with ignition, growth and spread being neglected.
Plume theories have also been neglected, as being too complex;
Thomas' Working Notes on Project Flambeau (1) give a survey of them.
Null hypotheses have been stressed, The prediction of burning rate in a
Flambeau type situation is regarded as the central problem, although later
sections do cover theories related to shelter and measurements.|
