  • Towards Data-Driven Operational Wildfire Spread Modeling: A Report of the NSF-Funded WIFIRE Workshop 

    Gollner, Michael; Trouve, Arnaud; Altintas, Ilkay; Block, Jessica; de Callafon, Raymond; Clements, Craig; Cortes, Anna; Ellicott, Evan; Filippi, Jean Baptiste; Finney, Mark; Ide, Kayo; Jenkins, Mary Ann; Jimenez, Daniel; Lautenberger, Christopher; Mandel, Jan; Rochoux, Melanie; Simeoni, Albert (2015-01-13)
    This report presents a record of the discussions that took place during the workshop entitled “Towards Data-Driven Operational Wildfire Spread Modeling” held on January 12-13, 2015, at the University of California, San ...
  • Pyrolysis of Reinforced Polymer Composites: Parameterizing a Model for Multiple Compositions 

    Martin, Geraldine Ellen (2015)
    A single set of material properties was developed to describe the pyrolysis of fiberglass reinforced polyester composites at multiple composition ratios. Milligram-scale testing was performed on the unsaturated polyester ...
  • Large Eddy Simulation of a Nonreacting Propane Jet 

    Briggs, Christopher Madden (2015)
    Simulations of a turbulent momentum driven jet are carried out by Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS). These simulations challenge the capabilities of FDS and identify strengths and weaknesses within its code; three bugs were ...
  • Development of a Cyber Physical System for Fire Safety 

    Wills, Rosalie Faith (2015)
    In this study a cyber physical system (a system of collaborating computational elements that monitor and control physical entities) test bed was developed to demonstrate the viability of real-time decision support for smart ...
  • A Generalized Model for Wall Flame Heat Flux During Upward Flame Spread on Polymers 

    Korver, Kevin (2015)
    A current model accurately predicts flame to surface heat flux during upward flame spread on PMMA based on a single input parameter, the mass loss rate. In this study, the model was generalized to predict the heat flux for ...
