1. Thermal Behavior of Structural Fire Fighting Protective Ensemble Samples Modified with Phase Change Material and Exposed in Full-Scale Room Fires.
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1739
Published: 3/20/2012
Authors: Adam M. Barowy, Daniel Madrzykowski
Abstract: Phase change materials (PCM) have been suggested as a means to increase the thermal protective performance of structural fire fighting protective ensembles (FFPE) by taking advantage of the thermal energy required for to change phase. The Nationa ...

2. Simulation of the Dynamics of a Wind-Driven Fire in a Ranch-Style House - Texas
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1729
Published: 1/5/2012
Authors: Adam M. Barowy, Daniel Madrzykowski
Abstract: This report describes the results of calculations using the NIST Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS) performed to provide insight on the thermal conditions that may have occurred during a wind-driven fire in a one-story ranch house on April 12, 2009 in ...

4. Modeling Produces Insight into Fire Behavior
Published: 11/1/2011
Authors: Adam M. Barowy, Daniel Madrzykowski
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is the leader in the development of computer-based fire models that simulate the movement of fire gases and heat through a building and estimate the response of various fire protection systems ...

5. Alarm Information for Decision Support
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1614
Published: 11/4/2010
Authors: William D. Davis, Adam M. Barowy, Stephen Kerber
Abstract: Experiments conducted in a Toledo Ohio school are used to examine the use of signals from simulated heat detectors by incident command. Two approaches are examined. The first is to use the signal from ceiling mounted thermocouples to deduce condit ...

7. Report on Residential Fireground Field Experiments
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1661
Published: 4/27/2010
Authors: Jason D Averill, Lori Moore-Merrell, Adam M. Barowy, Robert Santos, Richard D Peacock, Kathy Notarianni, Doug Wissoker
Abstract: Over the past three decades, fire department response has expanded from fire prevention and fire suppression to include multiple other community services such as emergency medical services, hazardous materials response, and special rescue. Today, ...
