Alaska Reference Database

The Alaska Reference Database originated as the standalone Alaska Fire Effects Reference Database, a ProCite reference database maintained by former BLM-Alaska Fire Service Fire Ecologist Randi Jandt. It was expanded under a Joint Fire Science Program grant for the FIREHouse project (The Northwest and Alaska Fire Research Clearinghouse). It is now maintained by the Alaska Fire Science Consortium and FRAMES, and is hosted through the FRAMES Resource Catalog. The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

The small world network model is extended to study fire spread through forest fuels. The proposed model includes the short-range radiative and convective effects from the flame as well as the long-range “spotting” effect of firebrands. It uses a...

A physics-based forest fire model, based on a multiclass description of two-phase flow, is developed to study fire behavior and the response of structures to fire-induced thermal stress. The model is three-dimensional and considers the coupled...

A 3-D computational fluid dynamics model is used to estimate the thermal impact on structures exposed to fire in the urban interface. The burning of vegetation is represented by a well-adjusted gas burner diffusion flame. This article examines two...

A fast model of radiative impact on structures exposed to a fire front in the urban interface is presented. The front is viewed as a collection of turbulent diffusion flames whose properties (composition and temperature) are taken from a database...

A computational procedure for predicting the buoyant plume above a line fire in a cross wind is reported. The present model takes into account the interaction between the plume and the surrounding flow by solving the two-dimensional equations for the...
