Title: Summary of Workshop on Research Needs for Full Scale Testing to Determine Vulnerabilities of Decking Assemblies to Ignition by Firebrand Showers
Published: September 14, 2011
Abstract: An international workshop was held within the Fire Research Division at NIST‰s Engineering Laboratory on June 27th, 2011. The workshop was entitled ,Urban and Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) Fires: A Workshop to Explore Future Japan/USA Research Collaborations.Š The workshop was organized by Dr. Samuel L. Manzello (EL-NIST/USA) and Dr. Keisuke Himoto (Kyoto University/JAPAN). The goal of this workshop was to open a dialogue to embark on new research collaborations between both countries in an effort to develop scientifically based building codes/standards that will be of use to both countries to reduce the devastation caused by urban and WUI fire spread.
