To better understand fire behavior, fire researchers conduct live-fire testing to support theoretical work. Ideally these tests would be done in full scale. However, due to cost and facility constraints, most live-fire research cannot be done in full scale. This…
This paper examines the effects of various fire suppression attack techniques on a fully developed compartment fire. In particular, the study tests the thermal and environmental conditions to which firefighters are exposed while extinguishing a fire with short, medium, or…
With photovoltaic systems, it is not possible to turn off the entire system during a fire event. Therefore, there is a risk of electrocution to firefighters. This paper examines safe distances for firefighting operations involving photovoltaic systems based on the…
Fire Safety Journal is an international journal devoted to research on Fire Safety Science and Engineering and the official Journal of the International Association for Fire Safety Science. Fire Safety Journal is the leading publication dealing with all aspects of…
