Title: Relationship of fuel size and spacing to combustion characteristics of laboratory fuel cribs

Author: Anderson, Hal E.;

Date: 1990

Source: Res. Pap. INT-RP-424. Ogden, UT: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Intermountain Research Station. 9 p.

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: Flaming combustion in cribs of large woody fuels, thickness 5 cm or greater, is not sustained when fuel spacing ratio, fuel edge-to-edge separation distance to fuel thickness, is greater than 3:1. The flame length associated with the large-fuel burning rate was found to drop rapidly when the large-fuel spacing ratio increases beyond 2.23:1. This supports the critical spacing assigned in the large-fuel subroutine burnout of Albini's fire modeling program.

Keywords: fuels, fire behavior, spacing, burning rates
