  • About the Edition

    Identifies and describes methods for quantifying from field observations two key parameters of wildlife behavior: fireline intensity and heat per unit area. Proposes standardization of terms and techniques as a means of improving experimental procedures and communication among fire behavior specialists, and as a means of correlating fire behavior and fire effects.

Attempts to correlate fire behavior to fire effects have been handicapped by the lack of clearly identifiable parameters for quantifying fire behavior.

The authors identify two key parameters of fire behavior-heat per unit area and fireline intenSity-and offer methods.

Identifies and describes methods for quantifying from field observations 2 key parameters of wildfire behavior: fireline intensity and heat per unit area. Proposes standardization of terms and techniques as a means of improving experimental procedures and communication among fire behavior specialists, and as a means of correlating fire behavior and fire effects.

Get this from a library. Measuring and interpreting fire behavior for correlation with fire effects. [Richard C Rothermel; John E Deeming; United States.

Department of Agriculture.; Intermountain Forest and Range Experiment Station (Ogden, Utah)]. Methods are given for using field observations (flame length, rate of spread, and residence time) to calculate heat/unit area and fireline by: istics of fire behavior: spread rate and intensity.

Its primary use is communicating and interpreting either site- specific predictions of fire behavior or National Fire- Danger Rating System (NF3RS) indexes and components.

Rate of spread, heat per unit area, flame length, and fireline intensity are plotted on a fire behavior chart. For these reasons, foresters, ecologists, land managers, geographers, and environmental scientists are interested in the behavior and ecological effects of fires.

This book will be the first to focus on the chemistry and physics of fire as it relates to the ways in which fire behaves and the impacts it has on ecosystem function. This book covers the four forms of fire: diffusion flames, smoldering, spontaneous combustion, and premixed flames.

Using a quantitative approach, it presents an ideal introduction to the scientific principles behind fire behavior.

Module 3: Fire Behavior up them very rapidly as the hot air rises, even creating their own winds. As a result, topography can alter the normal heat-transfer process in a fire, modify general weather patterns, and result in microclimates with localized moisture conditions.

In other words, Fire Dynamics is the study of how fires start, spread and develop. But what exactly is a fire. Fire can also be explained in terms of the. Fire intensity The most important measure of fire behaviour is fire intensity. Fire intensity (I) represents the heat released per meter of fire front (kW/m of fire front).

It is a function of (1) heat yield of fuel (kilojoules/kg), (2) amount of fuel per unit area (kg/m 2) and (3) the rate of forward spread of fire front (km/h).

An example of dangerous fire behaviour that can occur in a situation where there is a low concentration of oxygen is called backdraught. This is when an enclosed fire has used up most of the oxygen and is just smouldering.

If there is a sudden influx of oxygen (like someone opening a door or window), the fire will immediately explode into flame. Although the influence of each variable on fire behavior is complex due to nonlinear interactions between variables, several generalizations are made for each variable in the sections below.
