A Study on the Explosion Riskiness with Flying of Activated Carbon
Fire Science and Engineering, volume 12, issue 3, 1998, Pages 3~9
We investigated the weight loss according to temperature using TGA in order to find the thermal hazard of brand-new activated-carbon and disused activated-carbon dusts, and the properties of dust explosion in variation of the specific surface area of their dust with the same particle size. Using hartman's dust explosion apparatus which estimate dust explosion by electric ignition after making dust disperse by compressed air, dust explosion experiments have been conducted by varying concentration and size of activated carbon dust. The explosion pressure of both activated carbon increased as the specipic surface area increased. The results indicated that brand-new activated-carbon of which specific surface area was larger three to four times than that of disused activated-carbon was much easier of dust explosion.
The tracking of a smoke front under a ceiling by a laser sheet and thermocouples
Fire Science and Engineering, volume 12, issue 3, 1998, Pages 11~20
A new experimental technique using a laser sheet and thermocouples is introduced to evaluate an intuitive criterion for tracking of a smoke front using thermocouples. From synchronized photos of the smoke front along with temperature signals, the intuitive criterion is shown to be acceptable. Smoke visualization by a laser sheet proves to have several advantages over the conventional techniques such as the use of smoke generators.
A Experimental Study on Window Glass Breakage in Compartment Fires
Fire Science and Engineering, volume 12, issue 3, 1998, Pages 21~30
This is a study on the relation of window glass breaking time, shape, and vent condition in a compartment fire through the experiment. We recognize the phenomenon that window glass breakage in a compartment fire be arose from the thermal stresses due to the temperature temperature difference was 233.4
for test 1-3, 138
for text 2-1, 83.6
for test 2-2. The interior test 2-2, 400.9
for test 2-3. so if the flame didn't reach at the surface of window glass, the breakage of glass occure at 40
. when the fire size reached to 1541.14kW, the window might be broken by thermal stress. But window glass was not collapsed.
Estimation of heat release rate of liquid fuels by Oxygen consumption technique
Fire Science and Engineering, volume 12, issue 3, 1998, Pages 31~37
The heat release rate of liquid fuels is estimated by oxygen consumption technique. This method is based on the generalization that the heat release rate of combustion per unit of oxygen consumed are approximately the same for most fuels commonly encountered in fires. The oxygen concentration is measured by analyzer of paramagnetic type. The concentrations of CO2 and CO gas are measured by analyzed of Infra-Rad type. Time delays of analyzers are ignored. Results acqired from measuring techniques of exhaust gas concentrations are compared with each other.
