1. 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 ...

2. Development of a Hazard-Based Method for Evaluating the Fire Safety of Passenger Trains
Published: 6/29/1999
Authors: Richard W. Bukowski, Richard D Peacock, Paul A Reneke, Jason D Averill, S. H. Markos
Abstract: The fire safety of U.S. passenger rail trains currently is addressed through small-scale flammability and smoke emission tests and performance criteria promulgated by the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA). The FRA approach relies heavily on test ...

4. 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 ...

5. Required Safe Egress Time: Data and Modeling
Published: 1/1/2008
Authors: Jason D Averill, Paul A Reneke, Richard D Peacock
Abstract: This paper identifies sources of uncertainty in RSET (required safe egress time) calculations, with focus on data and modeling. A model for efficiently calculating the range of egress solutions for a particular design is presented. Three recommendat ...

6. Smoke Component Yields From Room-Scale Fire Tests (NIST TN 1453)
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1453
Published: 4/1/2003
Authors: Richard George Gann, Jason D Averill, Erik L Johnsson, Marc R. Nyden, Richard D Peacock
Abstract: This report presents the methodology for and results from a series of room-scale fire tests to produce data on the yields of toxic products in both pre-flashover and post-flashover fires. The combustibles examined were: a sofa made of upholstered cu ...

7. Smoke Control and Occupant Evacuation at the World Trade Center
Published: 6/21/2008
Authors: M J Ferreira, S M Strege, Richard D Peacock, Jason D Averill
Abstract: This paper examines smoke control and occupant evacuation in WTC 1 and WTC 2 on September 11, 2001focusing on the impact region and above for each tower. Approximately 2,000 individuals were at or above the area of impact in WTC 1 and WTC 2 who did ...

8. Accounting for Emergency Response in Building Evacuation: Modeling Differential Egress Capacity Solutions
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7425
Published: 4/1/2007
Authors: Jason D Averill, Weiguo Song
Abstract: The impact of firefighter response on the progress of the building evacuation is not typically considered. The emergency response can significantly increase total building evacuation time. In order to account for emergency response, this analysis c ...

9. After the Alarm Sounds: How We Got Here, Where We Are, and Where We Should Go
Published: 4/1/2011
Authors: Jason D Averill, Erica D Kuligowski, Richard D Peacock
Abstract: This article reviews the history of egress design and code requirements in the United States, describes the current state-of-the-art in egress design and modeling, and offers a strawman research agenda for future egress research.

10. Analysis of Egress From the World Trade Center Towers on September 11, 2001
Published: 1/31/2013
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 ...
