Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $325,715)
The goal of this project is to perform fundamental research to better understand the accuracy and reliability of potential signatures of electrical fires. The work will determine the required conditions that are needed for ignition and the subsequent forensic signatures that can be used to differentiate whether the electrical component was the cause of the fire or a victim of the fire. The project will focus on receptacles, plugs and cords with AC power.
