‘Bridge-mixing’ of igniting fuel vapors gasified from different combustibles by thermal radiation during flashover is presented in this article. This explains why combustible items of different ignition temperatures appear to be ignited at roughly the same time in flashover. Sample cubes of...
A water-based aerosol fire extinguishing agent (WAE) is a safe and practical alternative to halons. It comprises an oxidizer, a fuel and a catalyst. The WAE combusts and generates large amounts of inert gases and vapor, which are released into the fire scenario, extinguishing the fire. KNO 3 is...
This article describes an investigation into the fire performance of laminated veneer lumber (LVL) made from radiata pine, with glued-in steel rod connections. To determine charring rates, cone calorimeter tests are carried out on samples of LVL with a number of grain orientations, each for a...
The flame-retardant effects of nano magnesium hydroxide (NMH) and nano hydrotalcite (NLDH) in ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymer (EVA) are studied by using the limited oxygen index (LOI), UL-94 test, cone calorimeter test (CCT), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), laser Raman spectroscopy (LRS), and...
This study tries to develop an analysis procedure by which the architecture plans for egress systems can be evaluated and compared at normal condition evacuation or emergency evacuation with static (fixed blockage of selected target spaces, e.g., earthquake, bomb) or dynamic (timed block of...
