Book Description :

Thermal Protective Clothing for Firefighters explores the materials, design, and usage of thermal protective clothing. The characteristics of fire hazards are discussed in detail, and the thermal environments faced by firefighters in these fire hazards are also examined. The different types of potential burn injuries and the heat stress that occurs to firefighters’ bodies when exposed to such thermal environments are analyzed. Furthermore, the development of various high performance fibers and fabrics for thermal protective clothing is discussed. The test methods and existing standards to evaluate the thermal protective and physiological comfort performances of the fabrics and clothing are critically reviewed. Recent developments in the field of fire- and heat-resistant materials have led to significant improvements in thermal protective clothing. In parallel with this, the complexity and risk levels of fires, especially in industrial-storage facilities, and developments in health and safety cultures have increased the demand for high-performance heat- and flame-resistant clothing and equipment, designed to mitigate skin burn injuries and reduce risk of death from fire hazards. Throughout the work, the gaps and limitations in existing test methods and standards are identified, and approaches are recommended for the development of enhanced test methods. Scenario modeling and its implications for firefighters’ protective clothing is discussed, and various factors affecting performance are established. Finally, various key issues related to thermal protective clothing are addressed to guide the future research in the field of thermal protective clothing for firefighters. This book will help materials-textile engineers to develop high performance thermal protective clothing that can enhance the protection, safety, and comfort of firefighters. Offers a helpful guide to the successful specification and design of high performance protective clothing to meet the high standards of today's regulatory framework Introduces the new materials technical innovations that are transforming fire protective clothing Explores the role of clothing from the operational perspective, including technical innovations Offers a critical review of the test methods and existing standards to evaluate the thermal protective and physiological comfort performances of the fabrics and clothing

Book Description :

The purpose of this research is to investigate numerically the heat and moisture transport in the firefighter protective clothing under the flash fire exposure. Numerical results help in understanding the basic mechanisms of the transient heat and moisture transport through the protective clothing, air gap, and human skin; and the effects of the moisture content on the thermo-physical properties of protective garments during the radiation heat exposure as well as during the cool-down period. Prediction of thermal performance of garment aids in designing and creating a new firefighter protective turnout gear in order to prevent and minimize tissue burns that result from the radiant energy produced by the fire and from the localized contact flame exposure. During fire extinguishing, firefighters often sweat profusely and are also exposed to the dousing water from a hose spray, which leads to accumulation of moisture in the turnout gear. Evaporation, condensation, desorption, and absorption of the moisture and energy associated with phase change can affect the temperature and energy flux to the skin. Traditional thermal protective garments rely passively on thermal properties of fabric and the entrapment of insulating air layers to resist heat flux from flash fire exposures. To improve the level of heat flux resistance of thermal protective garments, this research evaluates the feasibility of developing a novel garment system based on the utilization of a water-injection. For the intelligent garment investigated in this research, the liquid water will be injected in the outer layer of the garment through a capillary net composed of thin perforated tubes; the injection process will be activated by a temperature sensor embedded in the outer fabric layer. Therefore, the new turnout system augments this outer layer, by providing an active thermal barrier and acting as a thermal buffer against the high heat flux associated with the flash fire exposure while the remaining in.

Book Description :

This research studied stored thermal energy in fire fighter's turnout systems. It developed a novel laboratory apparatus and test protocols for measuring the contribution of both transmitted and discharged stored energy on thermal protective performance. It examined the effects of thermal exposure conditions, as well as material variables and applied moisture on thermal energy stored in firefighter turnout materials exposed to heat intensities ranging from 0.06 to 0.50 cal/cm2 "ec. This research provides a useful preliminary basis for further development of laboratory test methods to measure phenomenon associated with the discharge of stored thermal energy from materials used in the construction of firefighter turnouts. It demonstrates the complexity of factors affecting these phenomena in turnout materials.

Book Description :

Thermal Protective Perfonnance (TPP) test wasdeveloped to quantify the performance of fire fighter protectiveclothing ensembles under an intense thermal exposure. This testmethod has certainly helped to improve the thermal protection of fire fighter protective clothing. However, many fire service bum injuries can be traced to significantly lower thermal exposures than are simulated by the TPP test. A bench scale test method has been developed to evaluate the perfonnance of fire fighter protective clothing at low heat fluxes. Tnaddition, a full scale test apparatus capable of exposing both complete fire fighter ensembles and samples similar to those used in the bench scale test to various heat flux levels is under development. Both of these tests provide temperature measurements on the surface of the outer shell, at locations between the fabric or moisture barrier layers inside the protective clothing system, and at the thermal liner surface. When plotted, these temperature measurements show a detailed picture of how a protective clothing system performs when exposed to a given thermal environment. This report describes comparisons of resultsobtained using the bench scale test with data from the full-scale test apparatus. The data are also compared to results from a fire fighter protective clothing heat transfer model.
