    • Assessment of the predictive capabilities of different modelling tools to forecast fire effects in residential compartments 

      Rengel Darnaculleta, Francisco de Borja; Pastor Ferrer, Elsa; Planas Cuchi, Eulàlia; Bartolomé, Albert; Mata Miquel, Cristian; Rios Rubiras, Oriol (Universidad de Cantabria, 2017)
      Conference report

      Residential occupancies are the most common type of buildings where compartment fires occur. In order to provide fire protection in these occupancies and thus to significantly reduce the number of future victims, the ...
    • Automatic detection of wildfire active fronts from aerial thermal infrared images 

      Valero Pérez, Mario Miguel; Rios Rubiras, Oriol; Pastor Ferrer, Elsa; Planas Cuchi, Eulàlia (2015)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Infrared (IR) imagery presents a great applicability in the field of wildland fires. However, most of the research conducted thus far has either focused on pre- and post- fire applications or relied on sophisticated ...
    • Compartment and façade large scale tests: behaviour comparison of different insulating materials in case of fire 

      Pastor Ferrer, Elsa; Corberó, Beatriu; Rios Rubiras, Oriol; Giraldo Forero, María del Pilar; Haurie Ibarra, Laia; Lacasta Palacio, Ana María; Cuerva Contreras, Eva; Planas Cuchi, Eulàlia (Czech Technical University, 2015)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Fire safety community is currently concerned about the response of some widely used insulating materials in case of fire, due to the fact that existing regulations do not show how these materials behave in real conditions, ...
    • Computing wildfire behaviour metrics from CFD simulation data 

      Valero Pérez, Mario Miguel; Pastor Ferrer, Elsa; Mata, Christian; Rios Rubiras, Oriol; Planas Cuchi, Eulàlia; Parsons, Russell (International Association of Wildland Fire, 2019)
      Conference lecture
      Open Access
      In this article, we demonstrate a new post-processing methodology which can be used to analyse CFD wildfire simulation outputs in a model-independent manner. CFD models produce a great deal of quantitative output but require ...

    • Inverse modelling in wildfire spread forecasting: towards a data-driven system 

      Rios Rubiras, Oriol (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-11-30)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      Wildfires are an ecological phenomenon inherent to earth dynamics and widely spread over the globe. In addition to the environmental impact, when wildfires grow beyond controllable magnitudes, they pose a principal threat ...
    • Metodologia de recollida de dades d’incendis d’interior

    • On the use of compact thermal cameras for quantitative wildfire monitoring 

      Valero Pérez, Mario Miguel; Jimenez, Daniel; Butler, Bret W.; Mata Miquel, Cristian; Rios Rubiras, Oriol; Pastor Ferrer, Elsa; Planas Cuchi, Eulàlia (2018)
      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      In recent times, there have been significant developments in remote sensing techniques applied to forest fire research. In particular, infrared (IR) imagery has proved effective to measure variables such as rate of spread, ...
    • Short term forecasting of large scale wind-driven wildfires using thermal imaging and inverse modelling techniques 

      Rios Rubiras, Oriol; Pastor Ferrer, Elsa; Planas Cuchi, Eulàlia (Imprensa da Universidade de Coimbra, 2014-10-31)
      Part of book or chapter of book
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      A key factor in decision-making process during a wildfire incident is counting on the forecast of how the fire is likely to behave in different fuels, weather conditions and terrain. Wildfire models and simulators attempt ...
    • Short-term fire front spread prediction using inverse modelling and airborne infrared images 

      Rios Rubiras, Oriol; Pastor Ferrer, Elsa; Valero Pérez, Mario Miguel; Planas Cuchi, Eulàlia (2016-10-03)
      Article
      Open Access
      A wildfire forecasting tool capable of estimating the fire perimeter position sufficiently in advance of the actual fire arrival will assist firefighting operations and optimise available resources. However, owing to limited ...
