Three Dimensional Simulations Of Fire Plume Dynamics
The velocity and temperature fields of fire plumes are studied theoretically and computationally using the authors' large eddy simulation techniques. A version of the Navier-Stokes equationsExpand

  • 20 May 2008
A simple physics-based mathematical model is developed for prediction of the propagation of a grass-fire front driven by an ambient wind and by entrainment winds generated from one or more burningExpand

Fire dynamics simulations of a one-meter diameter methane fire
A one-meter diameter-methane fire was simulated to validate a fire dynamics simulation code for large-scale fires. A uniform grid size of 2.5 cm in the entire computational domain is used. Therefore,Expand

Fire-Front Propagation Using the Level Set Method
Propagation of an outdoor fire front in wildland or in a combination of wildland and structural fuels (the so-called wildland-urban interface or WUI fire), can be modelled as an initial-value problemExpand

Mathematical Modeling of Wildland-Urban Interface Fires
This paper presents a simple model to demonstrate the effect on grass-fire propagation of the winds induced by structural fires in a Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) setting. The model combines anExpand

A simple model for wind effects of burning structures and topography on wildland-urban interface surface-fire propagation.
The present paper presents a simple model to demonstrate the effect on grass-fire propagation of the winds induced by structural fires in a wildland–urban interface setting. The model combines anExpand

Finite-Rate Diffusion-Controlled Reaction in a Vortex
Abstract The influence of a vortex on a gaseous diffusion reaction is examined. The vortex is taken to be two dimensional, and the species are initially assumed to occupy adjacent half spaces. In theExpand
