Investigating Coupled Effect of Radiative Heat Flux and Firebrand Showers on Ignition of Fuel Beds.
Results show that radiant heat flux plays an important role for ignition by firebrands under 6m/s while little effect was observed under 8 m/s, which is a key parameter in large outdoor fire spread processes.
Automation and control of thermal processes in the furnace
In this paper, the main components of the thermal processes in the furnace are considered. Also, the review discusses existing control systems for thermal furnaces and their components. The modern


Temperature Measurement of Glowing Embers with Color Pyrometry
The surface temperature of glowing embers are important for determining the burning rate of embers as they fall and their ability to ignite a target fuel when they land. Temperature measurements of
Particle surface temperature measurements with multicolor band pyrometry
A noncontact, color-band pyrometer, based on widely available, inexpensive digital imaging devices, such as commercial color cameras, and capable of pixel-by-pixel resolution of particle-surface
Measurement on the Surface Temperature of Dispersed Chars in a Flat-Flame Burner Using Modified RGB Pyrometry
A new spectral-emittance method to modify RGB pyrometry is developed for the surface temperature measurements of dispersed chars in a Hencken flat-flame burner. Nikon D300s, with calibrated spectral
Digital camera measurements of soot temperature and soot volume fraction in axisymmetric flames.
New diagnostics are presented that use a digital camera to measure full-field soot temperatures and soot volume fractions in axisymmetric flames, and agree with past measurements in this flame using traversing optics and probes.
Surface Temperature Measurements in Hypersonic Testing Using Digital Single-Lens Reflex Cameras
A newly adapted temperature measurement technique is presented for measuring aerospace relevant high surface temperatures. A comparatively cheap, available digital single-lens reflex camera is used
Measurement of surface temperature and emissivity of different materials by two-colour pyrometry.
An experimental investigation is performed to substantiate the capability of a charge coupled device camera to measure local temperature and emissivity of different materials heated to temperatures
Use of high dynamic range imaging for quantitative combustion diagnostics.
High dynamic range imaging is applied to quantitative combustion diagnostics in coflow laminar diffusion flames as a way to improve the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and measurement sensitivity; it is shown than an increase in SNR results in more precise temperature measurements for both soot and thin filament pyrometry.
Temperature characterization of a radiating gas layer using digital-single-lens-reflex-camera-based two-color ratio pyrometry.
The two-color ratio pyrometry technique using a digital single-lens reflex camera has been used to measure the time-averaged and path-integrated temperature distribution in the radiating shock layer in a high-enthalpy flow and obtained clearly distinguished regions of highest temperature.
