Preserved boreal zone forest massif mass estimation during fire extinguishing by liquid aerosol

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This study contains results of experimental studies into establishing the principles of decreasing the model of fire source mass when extinguishing the ground cover of deciduous and mixed forests by liquid aerosol. The experiments were carried out with typical forest fuels-birch leaves and mixed non-living components of temperate forest. Densities of forest fuel samples in a model of fire source were variated in the corresponding real practice ranges: 20.26-54.70 kg/m3 for birch leaves and 27.54-72.18 kg/m3 for a mixed forest fuel. Dimensions of droplets generated by the nozzle amounted to 0.01-0.12 mm. It is consistent with modern aerosol fire extinguishing systems. The dependence of the initial forest fuel sample mass on the remaining mass after ending of the pyrolysis reaction was established.
