Pyre
« on: February 02, 2014, 12:25:32 pm »

I have mounted a pyre of wood slats 10x10x100 cm. I have changed several times HRRPUA values. No light the wood with it.
I attached the file.

In the pyre I combie the starting position of the fire. Now the simulation works.
I attached the. I changed the HRR value contained in the program, those in different tables.
Best Regards

Your question has made us realize that we don't have a good example problem for setting something on fire. I think Dan or Jon is working on an example for you.

I've merged your two posts into this topic. Please use "Reply" instead of "New Topic" to continue a particular topic as it helps maintain continuity.

Charlie,

Will this example of how to set something on fire be publicly available? And if so, is there any timeframe for its release?


Thank you,
Jim

It's hard to say. One thing led to another and now I think we may be getting parts 2 and 3 of a video series on pyrolysis first. (part 1 is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p9pjR9QWqT0)

There is now a video tutorial that walks through igniting and burning away obstructions:
