Video series: NIST and UL research on fire dynamics
Check out the videos below to learn more about fire dynamics and firefighting tactics from experts in the fire service
The National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) and Underwriters Laboratories (UL) have been working together with the fire service to examine fire dynamics and firefighting tactics.
More than a hundred experiments have examined the changes in the fire environment over time, impact of ventilation, flow control and suppression tactics. The NIST and UL studies have produced tactical considerations that have become common themes over several studies which may change the way you view your standard operating guidelines.
