Collaboration with the Centre for Robotics and Machine Vision of Lévis (Québec).

  From 2007 to 2014, research into stereovision for the measurement of the geometric characteristics of spreading fire was conducted jointly with Dr  Moulay Akhloufi from the Centre for Robotics and Machine Vision of Lévis (Québec). Lucile Rossi undertook several stays at the CRVI and Dr Moulay Akhloufi was also hosted by the UMR SPE. The joint work conducted led to the development of a new method of detecting fire pixels, obtaining a three-dimensional shape of the fire front, calculating the geometric characteristics of spreading fire in the laboratory and over a tract of land of approximately 50m2 outdoors and to compiling a database of wildland fire images.
 
9 A-rated articles and 12 international conference articles were drafted within the framework of this collaboration.

Collaboration with the Multipolar Infrared Vision Canada Research Chair (MIVIM)

  Between 2012 and 2014, Mr Tom Toulouse embarked on a thesis co-supervised by the University of Corsica and the University of Laval (Québec), incorporating the "Fire" project as well as the MUVIM Chair. This collaboration enabled the development of a new multimodal fire pixel detection development.

Collaboration with the UPEC Laboratory of Image Signal and Intelligent Systems - LISSI 

 

  Collaboration with the LISSI "Machines et Systèmes Intelligents" team facilitated the development of research work relating to a new method of extracting fire areas from images and a system of artificial vision to support the combating of forest fires.
 
1 A-rated article and 1 international conference article were drafted within the framework of this collaboration.

Collaboration with the University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg

  Research comparing the performance of fire pixel detection methods and the development of new ones using artificial intelligence was conducted jointly with Dr  Turgay Celik of the University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg.
 
2 A-rated articles were drafted within the framework of this collaboration.

Collaboration with the Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Worcester, USA

Worcester Polytechnic Institute  The Department of Fire Protection Engineering laboratory located in the United States is specialised in fire protection. It has been a real support for the work led by the group focusing on Modelling the behaviour and impact of fire in order to develop safety distance models based on our solid flame approach.

Collaboration with the University of Coimbra, Portugal

ADAI  Initial contact with Prof. Domingos Xavier Viegas, Head of the ADAI Centre which specialises in issues related to forest fires and affiliated with the University of Coimbra in Portugal, was established in 2009 while the bilateral Pessoa (Portuguese Foundation for Science/Ministry of Foreign Affairs) project was being run over two years and which saw the collaboration between the "Fire" team of the University of Corsica and that of Prof. Viegas. ADAI researchers are specialised in the field of forest fire metrology. A week-long stay at the Portuguese laboratory in Coimbra in 2009 gave us the opportunity to meet all members of the research unit and to participate in experiments conducted in the laboratory. This collaboration continued when Dr Carlos Rossa visited our laboratory.
 
2 A-rated articles and 2 international conference articles were drafted within the framework of this collaboration.

Collaboration with the University of Edinburgh, Scotland

BRE The propagation models developed at our UMR 6134 allowed us to predict the behaviour of a forest fire by estimating its geometric characteristics, its position, its speed and the quantity of heat that it could release. Next, we decided to work with the Building Research Establishment Centre for Fire Safety Engineering and specifically with Dr Albert Simeoni on the issue of eruptive fire and the criteria for fire extinction with a view to developing models able to add information to that already provided during our initial research.

2 A-rated articles and 2 international conference articles were drafted within the framework of this collaboration.


Collaboration with the University of Aix-Marseille, Laboratory M2P2

M2P2  Prof. Dominique Morvan worked on the importance of radiation and convection in the spread of forest fires. He designed the Firestar 2D and 3D code. His expertise has guided us in taking into account the convective effects using the simplified physical model that we developed. This has enabled us to compare our numerical results to the simulations carried out by means of his code. Our collaboration began in 2016 and continues today.

Collaboration with the Tomsk Polytechnic University, Russia

Study of smouldering fires (Basic study), International Project for Scientific Cooperation (PICS) in collaboration with Russia and Great Britain.  Research work on the study of peat in fire conditions. Working in collaboration with researchers from the University of Tomsk and Edinburgh, we brought to light significant variations in terms of thermal behaviour depending on the source of the provided samples (Siberia or Scotland), the level of decomposition and the depth at which the peat was harvested. This PICS also provided the opportunity to consider the energy potential of peat and develop an algorithm allowing for the simulation of degradation at high heating rates.

In terms of the overall project (2010-2013), our research has been recognised in three publications (Fuel, Energy & Fuels, Journal of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry), one book chapter (Coal and Peat Fires: a Global Perspective, vol. 4) and five communications at international congresses.

 


Collaboration with the US Fire Department Forestry Department

Comparison of the predictions of various propagation models on cut plant fuels with D. Weise (Pacific Southwest Research Station) over the period 2015-2016. This collaborative research effort led to a publication (Wildland Fire) and a paper at a congress (9th US National Combustion Meeting).
