Progress Towards Precision Measurements of Radiant and Convective Flows in Wildland Fires: History and Current State of the Art

Date: May 29, 2018
Presenter(s): Robert L. Kremens
Description: The energy flow from a wildland fire is the most important measurable physical quantity. If we understand the time history of the energy flows, we can derive all other fire behavior and fire effects parameters. Dr. Bob Kremens will describe the difficulties in measuring the radiant heat release and explain a newly designed instrument. He will review the limitations of previous methods, as well as results obtained to date on prescribed fires in New Jersey and Florida.
