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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.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

Describes a theoretical model for calculating thermochemical properties of the gaseous fuel that burns in the free flame at the edge of a spreading fire in fine forest fuels. Predicted properties are the heat of combustion, stoichiometric air/fuel mass...

This paper presents formulae, tables, and figures that can be used to estimate the ratio of mean windspeed acting on the flame from a spreading wildland fire to the mean windspeed 20 ft (6 m) above the vegetation cover. The formulae for windspeed above...

Presents a predictive model for calculating the maximum spot fire distance expected when firebrands are thrown into the air by the burning of tree crowns. Variables included are: quantity and surface/volume ratio of foliage in the burning tree(s),...
