Why Attend

A Workshop on Structure Ignition in Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) Fires will be held June 18-19, 2015. Sponsored by ASTM Committee E05 on Fire Standards, the workshop will be held at the Marriott Anaheim in Anaheim, CA, in conjunction with the June standards development meetings of Committee.

Wildfires that spread into communities, commonly referred to as Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) fires, are a significant problem in Australia, Europe and the United States. WUI fire spread is extraordinarily challenging and presents an emerging problem in fire safety science. While it is accepted that WUI fires are an important societal problem, little understanding exists on how to contain and mitigate the hazard associated with such fires. From a simple point of view, the WUI fire problem can be seen as a structure ignition problem. Some building codes and standards already exist to guide construction of new structures in areas known to be prone to WUI fires in order to reduce the risk of structural ignition. These codes and standards have been developed based on best information at the time they were developed. Often this information was anecdotal. Based on current research, are these current codes and standards adequate? Proven, scientifically based retrofitting strategies are required for homes located in areas prone to such fires.
