Flashover Simulator

Return to Simulators Main Page

Students will watch as a fire builds and flames begin to extend over their heads (rollover) and build toward a flashover. Students learn about fire behavior, fire control without causing problems with visibility and heat due to steam generation (disturbing the thermal balance).

Students can watch the effects of opening a hole in the roof (vertical ventilation), and can open a door at the front of the trailer to initiate horizontal ventilation, and practice the use of a hose stream to supplement ventilation (hydraulic ventilation).

The team will participate in overhauling the interior of the trailer. This simulator is fueled with Class “A” materials.
