From Pyrolysis Kinetics to Models of Condensed-Phase Burning
The state-of-the-art of fire modelling is currently hindered due to a poor capability to model the burning of solid fuels. Current fire modelling tools provide good predictions of the thermal effects of a fire (e.g. the ...
Evaluation of the Thermophysical Properties of Poly(MethylMethacrylate): A Reference Material for the Development of a flammability Test for Micro-Gravity Environments
(The University of Maryland, 1999)
A study has been conducted using PMMA (Poly(methyl methacrylate)) as a reference material in the development process of the Forced Flow and flame Spread Test (FIST). This test attempts to establish different criteria for ...
Sensor-Linked Simulation for Emergency Response
(Human Behaviour in Fire, 2009-07)
The FireGrid project defines a vision whereby computational fire simulation tools are linked to real-time information derived from sensors in a building, providing potentially valuable information to an end user in terms ...
The Piloted Transition to Flaming in Smoldering Fire Retarded and Non-Fire Retarded Polyurethane Foam
(Wiley InterScience - Fire and Materials, 2008-12)
The piloted transition from smoldering to flaming, though a significant fire safety concern, has not been previously extensively studied. Experimental results are presented on the piloted transition from smoldering to ...
Bonded Fibre Reinforced Polymer Strengthening in a Real Fire
(Advances in Structural Engineering by Multi Science Publishing, 2010-01)
FRP strengthening is critically dependent upon the bonding adhesive. The adhesive used is typically an ambient cure epoxy with a glass transition temperature as low as 60ºC. This paper describes the performance of bonded ...
Incendio latente bajo las Tablas de Daimiel
(El Pais, 2010-04)
El incendio de las turberas secas del Parque Nacional de Las Tablas de Daimiel que se detectó en el verano de 2009 llevó a la sociedad española a conocer de primera mano y de golpe la amenaza que representan los incendios ...
