  • Performance analysis of a self-protection system for vehicles in case of WUI fire entrapment 

    Pastor Ferrer, Elsa; Sebastià, Joan; Mata Miquel, Cristian; Agueda Costafreda, Alba; Valero Pérez, Mario Miguel; Planas Cuchi, Eulàlia (2019)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Sheltering inside a civilian vehicle has proved to be a high risk strategy in case of wildfire entrapment. Survival is by no means guaranteed, especially in moderate to high-intensity wildfires. However, vehicles do offer ...
  • 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 ...
