I need to convert heat flux measured in kW/m2 (into laymen's terms). In addition, how would this symbol convert (or can it) to either heat (Fahrenheit or Celsius) or speed (i.e. foot/yard/meter per second/minute/hour – again in laymen’s terms). I’m trying to convert this symbol into heat intensity and how quickly it would drop when encountering a firebreak and its corresponding distance, ie. ROW (Right-of-Way) of gas pipeline. Unfortunately all the technical documents use a complicated equation or measurements using kW/m2. and I'm not skilled in that area. I want to show these distinctions in laymen’s terms so that the “general public” (including myself) would understand. The gist of the scenario is a wildfire in all of it's intensity approaching a gas pipeline Right-of-Way of 30 ft (firebreak). How would the wildfire be effected and how much would the heat flux diminish once it reaches the ROW firebreak.
