Relationship Between the Minimum Ignition Energy(MIE) and the Temperature
Fire Science and Engineering, volume 11, issue 2, 1997, Pages 3~10
Attempts are being made to investigate temperatures dependence of minimum ignition energy (MIE) based on concept of quantity of heat and thermal ignition theory. Regression equations for predicting MIE by means of temperature variations on the basis of statistical and mathematical methods are proposed. This study is undertaken to learn what proposed method is satisfactory hydrocarbons(propane and pentane). The proposed method has been tested and compared sucessfully with previously reported data in various journal.
A Study on the Decision of the Interface Height in Compartment Fire
Fire Science and Engineering, volume 11, issue 2, 1997, Pages 11~17
The objective of this research is to study on the decision of the interface height in a room in case of trashcan, chair, carpet and sofa as a fire starter in a residential room by performing the experimental studies. For the decision of the interface height, the temperatures of various positions in fire room are measured and the averaged temperatures are calculated from these measured temperatures every time and height. The temperatures of all positions in fire room are obtained as the basis of the measured temperatures and the middle point of the highest temperature slope is decided as the interface point. The interface heights were distinct and were around 1[m] maintaining constant state. However, at the time of the maximum temperature, the interface height was lowered to 0.25[m]-0.75[m] from the floor.
Safety Assessment of Burned Building using Numerical Calculation of Unsteady Heat Conduction Equation
Fire Science and Engineering, volume 11, issue 2, 1997, Pages 19~24
numerical simulation of unsteady heat conduction equation were carried out by finite control volume method using the gas temperature derived from fire model as a boundary value. The reduction of compressive and flexural by heating were calculated from the temperature and the given reduction rate. It is shown that this method could be well applied to assess the safety of concrete column or beam of the burned building.
Analysis of a Fire in an Apartment Building Using a Zone Model
Fire Science and Engineering, volume 11, issue 2, 1997, Pages 25~33
Fire hazards in an apartment building that represents the average households in Korean were investigated by conducting a full-scale experiment. This experiment attempts to analyze fire hazards using materials, and furnishings common to Korean housing stock. Experimental results are compared to the predictions of the C-FAST and smoke transport computer model. Comparisons between experimental data and C-FAST data are performed only to a living-room fire. Flashover occurred at approximately 380 seconds in a fire experinent, and at approximately 420 seconds in Zone-Model. Based on all of data between experimental data between experimental data and Zone-Model data, it is concluded that the safe egress time is at least 250 seconds.
A Study of Gas Leakage Monitoring System on a Long Distance Using the Hypertext Transfer Protocol
Fire Science and Engineering, volume 11, issue 2, 1997, Pages 35~44
In this paper, I present an architecture and techniques to monitor and identify the hazards of plants anywhere in the whole country using the HTTP(Hypertext Transfer Protocol) based on RFC1945 and PLC(Programmable Logic Controller) protocol. I constructed the upward network and downward network for intercommunication between the PLC and computer around the internet. I also constructed WWW(World-Wide Web) server in the personal computer The result of this research constructed monitoring system to monitor and identify the hazards through WWW browser on the internet.
A Study on the multcriteria Fuzzy Fire Detector
Fire Science and Engineering, volume 11, issue 2, 1997, Pages 45~53
In this article, the Fuzzy Logic as the principle of the multcriteria fire detector is used to determine whether the fire takes out or not. The main contents of this method as follow; most of all, the degree of the fire is represented as the type of the Fuzzy, and then it is possible to examine whether the fire takes out or not by the principle of the Fuzzy Logic. The input fators of the Fuzzy fire detector are temperature sensor, smoke sensor, light sensor applied to digital type. On the result of this study, the first, the number of the case of the nonfire alarm which is represented in the existing fire detector is reduced, and the second, the applicability of the fuzzy detector is demonstrated by the test.
