Fire Lab Seminar Series - From Wind to Fire; IBHS Test Chamber

Description

Part of the 2021-2022 Missoula Fire Lab Seminar Series

Presented by Dr. Faraz Hedayati and Dan Gorham, M.S.

IBHS test chamber is a unique facility to study the effects of wind on fire. The test chamber area is equal to four basketball courts which allows researchers to perform large scale wind and fire tests. The test chamber is equipped with 105 fans that can generate gusty wind ranging from 12 to 120 mph. In this presentation, we will share our experience on creating realistic gusty wind and its effects on fire tests. Then, we will talk about translating our research into real-world applications through building codes and public policy.
