  • Multiple Instruments Work Together for a Better View of Air Quality

    Accurately identifying and quantifying particulate matter (PM) in the atmosphere is key to determining air quality. Researchers are particularly interested in PM that have a diameter of less than 2.5 micrometers because they are believed to contribute to heart and lung disease in humans and animals. These tiny particles are invisible to the naked eye and originate from power plants, fires, and ...

  • Experimental Study of the Fire-extinguishing Effectiveness of 1-Bromo- 3,3,3-Trifluoropropene/Nitrogen Mixtures

    The search for a new fire-extinguishing agent with all the desirable properties of Halon 1301 has not been successful. In this study, the authors have pursued the development of 1-bromo-3,3,3-trifluoropropene (BTP), which has a very low extinguishing concentration, but with its high boiling point, it is not a suitable replacement for Halon 1301. However, mixtures of BTP in an inert gas could ...

  • Assessment of extinguishing waters from intermediate-scale fire tests

    Water is, for several reasons, by far the most widely used agent for extinguishing fires. Large quantities will turn to steam, but much will drain away with more or less ecotoxic effects on the ground and aquatic environments. Although this fire water run-off does not usually present a serious risk to the environment, it is reasonable to take precautions and to have quick in situ measures for ...
