Blanchat, T. and Figueroa, V., 2008. Large-Scale Open Pool Experimental Data and Analysis for Fire Model Validation and Development. Fire Safety Science 9: 105-115. doi:10.3801/IAFSS.FSS.9-105
Four large-scale open pool fire experiments were performed with well-characterized boundary and initial conditions. Results presented include a general description of test observations, wind measurements, fire plume topology, fuel recession and heat release rates, incident heat flux to the pool, surrounding terrain, and calorimeters. All initial and boundary condition data required as necessary inputs to computation models are also presented. The large physical scale, the experimental design, the use of independent measurement techniques, and the attention to data quality provide a unique dataset to support numerical fire model validation.
