52. Development of a Fire Hazard Assessment Method to Evaluate the Fire Safety of Passenger Trains
Published: 1/22/2001
Authors: Richard D Peacock, Richard W. Bukowski, Paul A Reneke, Jason D Averill, S. H. Markos
Abstract: U.S. passenger train fire safety has historically been addressed primarily through the citation of small-scale flammability and smoke emission tests and performance criteria promulgated by the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA). This approach has ...

54. Evaluating Multi-Sensor Fire Detectors in the Fire Emulator/Detector Evaluator
Published: 6/29/1999
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, Michael D. Anderson, Jason D Averill, William L. Grosshandler
Abstract: NIST has developed the Fire Emulator/Detector Evaluator (FE/DE) for the purpose of testing detectors in a controlled environment. The FE/DE is a flow tunnel where fire or nuisance source characteristics can be controlled so that a detector placed in ...

55. Analysis of Egress From the World Trade Center Towers on September 11, 2001
Published: Date unknown
Authors: Richard D Peacock, Jason D Averill, Erica D Kuligowski
Abstract: This paper provides an analysis of the evacuation of the World Trade Center towers culled from telephone and face-to-face interviews with survivors. A decedent analysis explores where occupants were located when each tower was attacked. Multiple re ...

56. Challenges in Modeling Scalars in Turbulence and LES: Anisotropy, dynamic models, and scale separation
Published: Date unknown
Authors: Jason D Averill, C Meneveau, H S Kang, F Charlette, O Knio, D Veynante
Abstract: This paper discusses three interrelated aspects of modeling scalar transport, mixing and combustion, in the context of large-eddy simulation (LES). In terms of passice scalar modeling, we find deom heated wake measurements that whereas the kinetic e ...
