Get this from a library. PLUMP, a plume predictor and cloud model for fire managers. [Don J Latham; Intermountain Research Station (Ogden, Utah)]. PLUMP is a general -purpose, one-dimensional plume rise model for wildfire and prescribed fire planning.

It calculates the characteristics of fire plu8mes, including vertical velocity, water content, excess temperature, rain, and ice. The model can also be used to determine the possibility and extent of cumulus growth when estimating lightning activity.

INTRODUCTION. PLUMP is a one-dimensional time dependent plume model that includes parameterized cloud physics and entrainment. It generates vertical profiles of water vapor, cloud particles, rain and ice, temperature anomaly between the plume and surroundings, and vertical velocity from a vertical sounding of the atmosphere and varying boundary conditions.

ISOLATED FIRE PLUME We first consider an isolated fire plume generated by a pool fire. The minimum length scale that must be resolved here is the plume structure scale D* = (Q/pocpToJg)2~s. Since D* is roughly comparable to the plume diameter near the base, the plume dynamics can only be accurately simulated if the resolution limit is about D'.

Hasemi and Tokunaga[8], Kokkala[9], and Tran and Janssens[lO] studied the flame tip height and the buoyant plume properties using a square fire source set in a corner of vertical walls. Smoke plume rise is an important factor for smoke transport and air quality impact modeling.

This study provides a practical tool for estimating plume rise of prescribed fires. A regression model was developed on the basis of observed smoke plume rise for 20 prescribed.

The author reviews progress made in understanding and predicting the dynamics of fire plumes and suggests areas for further study. Turbulant plumes, axisymmetric in the mean, are considered, from the far-field, weakly buoyant to the near-flame, strongly bouyant elevations, into the flaming region.

86 Smoke plume height, also called smoke plume rise, is the elevation above the ground of the top 87 of a smoke plume. A typical plume height is about 1 kilometer for Rx fire and several kilometers 88 for wildfire. Smoke plume height is an important factor for local and regional air quality 89 modeling.

In hydrodynamics, a plume or a column is a vertical body of one fluid moving through another. Several effects control the motion of the fluid, including momentum (inertia), diffusion and buoyancy (density differences).

Pure jets and pure plumes define flows that are driven entirely by momentum and buoyancy effects, respectively. Flows between these two limits are usually described as forced. the possibility of a wind-driven or plume-dominated fire.

The characteristics of these fires and dangers to fire fighters are discussed. A simple elliptical model is developed for estimating the area and perimeter of a large fire.
