Plant alkali content and radio wave communication efficiency in high intensity savanna wildfires
(Elsevier Science Ltd. www.elsevier.com/locate/jastp, 2007)
The flames of wildfires are weakly ionized gas. The ionization is mainly due to omnipresent alkali and alkaline earth metal species that are emitted from thermally decomposing plant structure into the flame during a ...
Measurement of breakdown electric field strength for vegetation and hydrocarbon flames
(Scientific Research Publishing Inc., https://www.scirp.org/, 2018)
A significant number of fire-induced power disruptions are observed in several countries every year. The faults are normally phase-to-phase short circuiting or conductor-to-ground discharges at mid-span region of the ...
An empirical relation for vegetation fuel flames breakdown electric field strength
(Scientific Research Publishing Inc., https://www.scirp.org/journal/jemaa/, 2019)
The compulsion to provide reliable electric power for sustenance of socio-economic development is vital for most of southern Africa states. The demand for the resource in the region is anticipated to escalate in the next ...
Radio wave propagation experiment in sugarcane fire environments
(Scientific Research Publishing Inc., https://www.scirp.org/journal/jemaa/, 2016-07-21)
Large fires have an effect of suppressing Very or Ultra High Frequency (VHF/UHF) radio wave signals strength which consequently impact negatively on the efficiency of radio communications at the frequency ranges. Mobile ...
