Solid-phase pyrolysis is often modelled using the Arrhenius degradation equation with three unknown parameters: reaction order, activation energy and pre-exponential factor. Since the parameters are model dependent and not directly measurable, several estimation methods have been developed over...
Surface-modified ammonium polyphosphate was prepared by a sol–gel method using tetraethoxysilane and methyltriethoxysilane as precursors. The reaction conditions were optimized in order to decrease the water solubility of the ammonium polyphosphate. Then, modified ammonium polyphosphate and...
The thermal degradation and the fire behavior of a polyester resin containing phosphate-based fire-retardant additives and its corresponding glass fiber composites were investigated. An unsaturated commercial polyester resin was modified by the addition of three phosphate-based fire retardants:...
Fuel bulk density and fuel moisture content effects on fire rate of spread were assessed in shrub fuels, comparing experimental data observed in outdoor wind tunnel burns and predictions from the physically-based model FIRETEC. Statistical models for the combined effects of bulk density and fuel...
The concept of numerical simulations for real-time Numerical Fire Forecasting is illustrated for the case of natural smoke filling of a large-scale atrium in case of fire. The numerical simulations are performed within the Inverse Zone Modelling framework. The technique consists of assimilating...
Self-heating of coal depends partly on intrinsic, coal-related factors. This article aims to discuss the Smith–Glasser index as a potential indicator of the self-heating propensity of a large set of bituminous coals with similar heating value but different origins. For this purpose, recorded...
