  • Analysis of the geometric and radiative characteristics of hydrocarbon pool-fires 

    Planas Cuchi, Eulàlia; Casal Fàbrega, Joaquim; Arnaldos Viger, Josep; Muñoz, Miguel Ángel (2004-08-01)
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The radiation intensity at a given distance depends mainly on the radiative power and the flame’s size and shape. Considerable literature describing both experimental and theoretical studies of thermal radiation from ...
  • Consequences of major accidents : assessing the number of injured people 

    Ronza, Andrea; Casal Fàbrega, Joaquim; Muñoz, Miguel Ángel; Carol Llopart, Sergi (Elsevier, 2005-10-28)
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Quantitative risk assessment studies of accident scenarios usually involve estimating the number of fatalities that can be expected. The number of people injured, however, is seldom evaluated because it implies significant ...
  • Jet fires: An experimental study of the main geometrical features of the flame in subsonic and sonic regimes 

    Palacios, Adriana; Muñoz, Miguel Ángel; Casal Fàbrega, Joaquim (2009-01)
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Although jet fires are usually smaller than other fires, they may lead to a destructive chain of events that can increase the scale of an accident. Therefore, their size should be predicted for accurate risk assessment. ...
  • Paramentos : nuevos revestimientos 

    Bosch González, Montserrat; Giró, Verònica; Muñoz, Miguel Ángel (Edicions UPC, 2002)
    Restricted access to the UPC academic community
    El presente volumen tiene por objeto ser un documento de consulta para estudiantes y profesionales relacionados con el mundo de la arquitectura y la construcción. En él se ofrece la información sobre los materiales utilizados ...
  • Radiant heat from propane jet fires 

    Gómez Mares, Mercedes; Muñoz, Miguel Ángel; Casal Fàbrega, Joaquim (2010)
    Open Access
    Sonic propane jet fire experiments were carried out in absence of wind, with visible flame length ranging between 2.2 and 8.1 m. The thermal radiation intensity increased with the mass flow rate and the flame length. The ...
