      Log, Torgrim; Vandvik, Vigdis; Velle, Liv Guri; Log, Maria-Monika Metallinou (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020-03-18)
      In recent years, severe and deadly wildland-urban interface (WUI) fires have resulted in an increased focus on this particular risk to humans and property, especially in Canada, USA, Australia, and countries in the ...
    • Small Scale Hydrocarbon Fire Test Concept 

      Bjørge, Joachim Søreng; Metallinou, Maria-Monika; Kraaijeveld, Arjen; Log, Torgrim (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017-11-14)
      In the oil and gas industry, hydrocarbon process equipment was previously often thermally insulated by applying insulation directly to the metal surface. Fire protective insulation was applied outside the thermal insulation. ...
    • Study of Industrial Grade Thermal Insulation at Elevated Temperatures 

      Gunnarshaug, Amalie; Log, Torgrim; Metallinou, Maria Monika (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Thermal insulation is used for preventing heat losses or heat gains in various applications. In industries that process combustible products, inorganic-materials-based thermal insulation may, if proven sufficiently heat ...
