Dr. Craig G. Weinschenk

Dr. Craig G. Weinschenk is a Post-Doctorate in the Engineered Fire Safety Group of the Fire Research Division (FRD) of the Engineering Laboratory (EL) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

Dr. Weinschenk joined the Fire Research Group as a National Research Council (NRC) postdoctoral research associate in August of 2011 under the supervision of Dr. Randy McDermott. The focus of Dr. Weinschenk's postdoctoral research is to address issues related to CO production in under-ventilated compartment fires. 

Dr. Weinschenk’s background is in strong vent flow compartment fire modeling. While at the University of Texas-Austin under the supervision of Prof. Ofodike Ezekoye, Dr. Weinschenk explored the impact of positive pressure ventilation on fire spread into void spaces and developed a low-order stochastic model for strong vent flow fires.
