Abstract:

Various new techniques have recently been developed that are capable of measuring the low velocity of buoyancy-driven flows associated with small to medium size fires. Ion deflection and fluidie devices, the laser Doppler anemometer and instruments utilizing auto-correlation techniques, are all commercially available and are excellent "bench top" research tools.
