Experiments and Observation of Peat Smouldering Fires
(International Meeting of Fire Effects on Soil Properties, 2007-01-30)
If a subsurface layer of peat is ignited, it smoulders (flameless combustion) slowly but steadily. These fires propagate for long periods of time (days, weeks, even years), are particularly difficult to extinguish and can ...
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 ...
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 ...
