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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

This note extends a predictive model for estimating spot fire distance from burning trees (Albini, Frank A. 1979. Spot fire distance from burning trees--a predictive model. USDA For. Serv. Gen. Tech. Rep. INT-56, 73 p. Intermt. For. and Range Exp. Stn...

A speculative, phenomenological model is formulated for the time-varying intensity and spread rate of a free-burning fire under the influence of nonsteady wind. The model is linearized by approximations and explicit solutions derived for the amplitude...

The elements of a theory for the process of free spread of fire through brush are presented in terms of simple stepwise processes, which are analyzed separately but joined by their common physical parameters. The stepwise processes analyzed are: (1)...

Quantification and methods of prediction of wildland fire behavior are discussed briefly and factors of particular relevance to the prediction of fire behavior in Mediterranean ecosystems are reviewed. A computer-based system which uses relevant fuel...

An empirical representation of the power spectral density of horizontal gustiness near the ground in high winds is combined with a theoretical model for the response of free-burning fires to nonsteady wind to predict the variability of spread rate and...

A mathematical model for the near-surface flow of air up a sun-heated slope is derived. The model is used to produce tables and graphs for estimating "midflame" windspeeds as needed for predicting wildland fire behavior. The model applies on...

A one-dimensional model is developed for the structure of the wind-blown, turbulent flame from a line fire in which buoyancy is the principal source of vertical momentum. A one-step, second-order bimolecular reaction between fuel and air is used, with...
