Title: NIST Firebrand Device Could Save U.S. and Japanese Homes
Description: NIST researchers use a firebrand generator to duplicate firebrand showers seen in wildland-urban interface fires. Here the firebrands are aimed at a three millimeter screen mesh. Combustible material is behind the screen. The test seeks to ascertain the likelihood that embers could penetrate building vents and cause a home fire.
