In warehouse storage applications, it is important to classify the burning behavior of commodities and rank them according to their material flamma-bility for early fire detection and suppression operations. In this study, an approach is presented to model the large-scale effects of warehouse fires by decoupling the problem into separate processes of heat(More)
In warehouse storage applications, it is important to classify the burning behavior of commodities and rank them according to material flammability for early fire detection and suppression operations. In this study, the large-scale effects of warehouse fires are decoupled into separate processes of heat and mass transfer. As a first step, two nondimensional(More)
Fire models are routinely used to evaluate life safety aspects of building design projects and are being used more often in fire and arson investigations as well as reconstructions of firefighter line-of-duty deaths and injuries. A fire within a compartment effectively leaves behind a record of fire activity and history (i.e., fire signatures). Fire and(More)
