Conventional thermally durable materials such as metals are being replaced with heat resistant engineering polymers and their composites in applications where burn-through resistance and structural integrity after exposure to fire are required. Poly aryl ether ether ketone (PEEK) is one such engineering polymer. Little work has been published with regards(More)
Title: SOOT OXIDATION IN HYDROCARBON-FREE FLAMES Haiqing Guo, Doctor of Philosophy, 2015 Directed by: Associate Professor Peter B. Sunderland Department of Fire Protection Engineering There are high uncertainties in the existing models of soot oxidation rates. To ameliorate this, soot oxidation in flames was examined using a novel ternary flame system,(More)
The theory and implementation of reactive molecular dynamics (RMD) are presented. The capabilities of RMD and its potential use as a tool for investigating the mechanisms of thermal transformations in materials are demonstrated by presenting results from simulations of the thermal degradation of poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA). While it is known that(More)
It is has been demonstrated that the addition of small quantities of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) can dramatically improve thermal and mechanical properties of polymers [1-6]. In many cases, however, this enhancement of properties is limited by the degree to which the CNTs can be uniformly dispersed within the polymer matrix. This appears to be particularly true(More)
Title of Document: Upward Flame Spread Over Discrete Fuels Colin H. Miller, Master of Science, 2014 Directed By: Dr. Michael J. Gollner, Assistant Professor, Department of Fire Protection Engineering Upward flame spread over discrete fuels has been analyzed through experimental research on vertical arrays of alternating lengths of PMMA and insulation. By(More)
Title of Thesis: MEASUREMENT OF INVERSE DIFFUSION FLAME QUENCHING LIMITS Yi Zhang, Master of Science, 2013 Directed By: Associate Professor Peter B. Sunderland Department of Fire Protection Engineering Quenching limits of inverse diffusion flames were measured for different conditions. The flames were laminar and axisymmetric and were obtained by injecting(More)
