An Educational Laboratory Experiment to Demonstrate the Development of Fires in a Long Enclosure
Moinuddin, Khalid
Chemical Engineering Education, v47 n2 p115-132 Spr 2013
This paper is aimed at describing an experiment involving flame-front movement across the fuel package located within long enclosures and associated heat transfer mechanism. There is a growing interest in incorporating safety education in the chemical engineering curriculum, especially in relation to "facility siting." This experiment is designed for engineering students to appreciate the threat posed to the building structural safety as well as occupant safety due to the fire within the enclosure and at different locations and times.
