This article evaluates several antifreeze agents for automatic sprinkler systems by focusing on the expected contribution of the combustion energy of such agents to a fire. Such an energy contribution could potentially result in an excessive number of sprinklers being activated and thereby...
The most commonly used emissive power correlations were developed for pool fires. A literature search has been conducted to identify available empirical data sets that could be used to benchmark these correlations and to predict emissive power of fires involving wood and similar materials. Using...
Airflow control has become a large part of the tactical toolbox that firefighters use to combat fires. Control of airflow requires managing the impact of environmental conditions (i.e., wind) and optimally using mechanically generated flows from fans to drive air and combustion products through...
An algorithm that calculates the time dependent smoke concentration in a fire-induced ceiling jet within a smoke layer and algorithms for predicting the response of photoelectric smoke alarms, both of which are part of the computer model JET, are examined using three different fires in a small...
