The aerodynamic and combustion characteristics of eucalypt bark : a firebrand study

Ellis, Peter Francis


The process of spotting whereby burning firebrands are transported by convection and wind to ignite new fires ahead of the source fire is significant both economically and in terms of exposure of fire crews to dangerous situations. Spotting behaviour recorded in Australia is the worst in the world in terms of spotfire distance and concentration and this has been attributed to features of eucalypt bark types.
