Unit 4 Assignment: Case Study: Heat Flux

Review the case study file and write a 2-page paper that explains heat flux and its implications in the danger of fire heat transfer. After reviewing the pictures in the case study file of the two- sided, three-sided, and four-sided work stations, do the following:

•Prepare a brief listing of the arrangement and composition of fuels present in each office cubicle.

•Compare the amounts of fuel in each cubicle and determine if they are the same or different.

•Explain which fire develops faster.

•Describe why each fire develops faster in terms of heat flux and heat transfer by looking at the time in seconds and mega-watts being produced. In other words, if each fire set is the same, then why did the fire in one of the three cubicles develop faster than the other two and release more heat energy?
