    Title:Using a radiant panel to compare wildfire chemicals
 
    Year:2012
 
    Status:Completed
 
    Researcher(s):Ray Ault (Lead); Rex Hsieh
 
    Abstract:The Canadian Interagency Forest Fire Center (CIFFC), Aviation Working Group has asked FPInnovations to develop a way to measure the performance and cost-effectiveness of water-enhancing gels, and to compare that to water and other wildland firefighting chemicals (foams and retardants). This information is needed to help agencies understand the operational conditions where water-enhancing gels are best suited.
