Asphalts and wax emulsions have been recommended as protective coatings to help obtain clean, safe burns in slash disposal work. Fuel value determinations in the laboratory indicate that such coatings add little to the fuel value of slash.

In this paper it is shown how earlier results for buoyant vortex rings may be extended to describe the corresponding two-dimensional case, which arises in the theory of bent-over plumes. It is again assumed that in uniform surroundings the circulation...

To study mechanisms affecting particulate matter production from forest fires, a combustion chamber system was developed. This closed system was used primarily for producing cylindrical laminar diffusion flames by burning alpha-pinene under controlled...

In compartment fires a situation often develops in which a layer of oxygen-depleted gases builds up in the upper part of the enclosure. The downward reach of such a layer can be sufficient to make its lower boundary interact with the fire plume. In...

Planning prescribed fires for optimal periods which results in emissions reduction is an extremely useful air quality management technique. New information suggests that one more useful tool in smoke management may involve using the capacity of the...

Although forest burning is prescribed widely across the United States, it is most commonly practiced in the Northwestern and the Southern United States. In 1978, approximately 37 million metric tons of forest fuels on all forest ownerships were burned...

A high performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method for determining the concentration of trace amounts of benzo(a)pyrene (B(a)P) in particulate matter from combustion of forest fuels was validated. Particulate matter was prepared for analysis by a...

Outdoor experiments were conducted on a laboratory scale to study the infrared radiation emission of vegetation flames. Measurements were made in the spectral range 1000-4500 cm -1, using a compact and portable Fourier-transform infrared spectrometer...
