3D Firefighting is an approach that accounts for the entire compartment environment while fighting a fire. In particular, 3D firefighting depends upon a knowledge and recognition of fire behavior and addresses the dangers present in the heated gases in a…
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…
In order to advance the firefighting tactics for oil tank fires, the influences of oxygen-reduced nitrogen-enriched air on the behavior of a small scale n-heptane tank fire was experimentally investigated. The results support the use of high-power water spray systems…
In this study, the role of the physical, thermal, and chemical effects of water mist on a fire are partly quantified experimentally by using a methane counter flow diffusion flame. It was found that there exists a critical diameter below…
