Project Type MQP Submission date 2006-04-26 Authors Andrew D Ellison, ME Timothy M. Groch, ME Beth A Higgins, ME Mark T Verrochi, ME URN E-project-042606-154612 Title Thermal Manikin Testing of Fire Fighter Ensembles Advisor Barnett, Jonathan Ross, FP Availability unrestricted
Fire testing criteria was developed for an existing fire fighter clothing evaluation facility designed by previous WPI projects. To accommodate full ensembles, a new manikin suspension system was constructed. Laboratory instrumentation was updated to facilitate refined data collection and allow for additional sensors provided by NCTRF. A series of calibration analyses were conducted on the instrumentation to compare with results from past experiments. Recommendations defining ensemble failure were compiled based on prototype testing of US Navy and Australian protective clothing.
