Delaney Seeburger - Reax Engineering


This presentation will discuss the characterization of soot produced under varying oxygen/nitrogen concentrations during combustion of pine needles. These experiments were performed to analyze the effect variations in soot particle size may have on radiation in wildland fires. Because of the increasing frequency and severity of wildland fires, understanding the mechanisms of fire spread and the role soot particles play is of critical importance.


Delaney Seeburger graduated from California Polytechnic State University with an MS in Fire Protection Engineering in June of 2019. Over the past two summers, she has interned with the National Park Service and Jensen Hughes. During her last term at Cal Poly, Delaney worked as a research assistance at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, helping with various wildland fire projects. She is currently working for Reax Engineering in the Bay area, assisting with several projects on proactive de-energization thresholds for utility companies. Delaney is a member of SFPE, NFPA, and IAWF.
