    Title:Testing a method to evaluate the effectiveness of water-enhancing gel on vertical surfaces
 
    Year:2010
 
    Status:Completed
 
    Researcher(s):Peter de Bruijn (Lead)
 
    Abstract:The main objective of this project was to test a potential method for evaluating gel effectiveness on vertical surfaces under wildfire conditions. Researchers wanted to determine whether cubes constructed with T1-11 plywood siding could be successfully used for gel application and then subjected to a high intensity crown fire. A secondary objective was to obtain a basic understanding of how long water-enhancing gels, applied to vertical surfaces, would remain effective as a barrier to fire ignition.
