Since I missed the seminar for week 8 I did the alternative to the seminar. I read the transcript and took notes. Here is what I learned about: color, density, turbulent and laminar flow, velocity, volume, and inventorying fire gasses. The smoke color indicates the type of material is burning. The smoke color tells the stage of heating and helps to determine the location of fire within a building. White smoke is moisture, tan or brown smoke is wood, grey smoke is plastics and painted/stained surfaces, and black smoke is a mix of moisture and hydrocarbons. The smoke color can help find the location of a fire (Dobson, 2005). The density refers to its thickness. Thickness tells you how much fuel is laden in the smoke. The thicker the smoke the more the flashover or fire will spread. Turbulent smoke is a flashover warning sign. Thick laminar flowing smoke can ignite because of continuity of fuel to a flaming source (Dobson, 2005).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
