61. Scaling Compartment Fires - Reduced- and Full-Scale Enclosure Burns.
Published: 9/10/1995
Authors: Nelson P Bryner, Erik L Johnsson, William M Pitts
Abstract: An extensive series of over 140 natural gas fires in a 2/5ths-scale model of a standard room has been previously reported. This work extends the earlier reduced-scale enclosure (RSE) study to a full-scale enclosure (FSE) and focuses on comparing the ...

62. Combustion Product Formation in Under and Overventilated Full-Scale Enclosure Fires
Published: 4/23/1995
Authors: William M Pitts, Nelson P Bryner, Erik L Johnsson
Abstract: The findings of an extensive series of over 140 natural gas fires in a 2/5ths-scale model of a standard room have been previously reported. The current work extends the earlier reduced-scale enclosure (RSE) study to a full-scale enclosure (FSE) and f ...

63. Carbon Monoxide Production in Compartment Fires: Reduced-Scale Enclosure Test Facility (NISTIR 5568)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5568
Published: 12/1/1994
Authors: Nelson P Bryner, Erik L Johnsson, William M Pitts
Abstract: The formation of carbon monoxide during room or compartment fires has been investigated using natural gas fires burning within a reduced-scale enclosure (RSE), an 0.98 m x 0.98 m x 1.46 m (w x h x d) room with a single door opening centered in the fr ...

64. Carbon Monoxide Production in Compartment Fires: Full-Scale Enclosure Burns (NISTIR 5499)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5499
Published: 9/1/1994
Authors: Nelson P Bryner, Erik L Johnsson, William M Pitts
Abstract: Recent studies attribute a large percentage of fire injuries and deaths to the generation of carbon monoxide (CO) and indicate that in roughly two-thirds of the fire deaths the fire victims have fatal or incapacitating levels of carboxyhemoglobin in ...

65. Fire-Induced Mass Flow Into a Reduced-Scale Enclosure (NISTIR 5499)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5499
Published: 9/1/1994
Authors: Erik L Johnsson, Nelson P Bryner, William M Pitts
Abstract: Enclosure fires are of great interest because of the resulting loss of life and property, yet the fluid dynamic and chemical behaviors of fires within enclosures are still not well understood. In recent decades, it has become clear that burning rates ...

66. Carbon Monoxide Formation in Fires by High-Temperature Anaerobic Wood Pyrolysis
Published: 7/31/1994
Authors: William M Pitts, Erik L Johnsson, Nelson P Bryner
Abstract: Building fire fatalities often occur at locations remote from the room where the fire is actually burning. The majority of these fire deaths are the result of smoke inhalation, primarily due to exposure to carbon monoxide (CO). Although causing nearl ...

67. Comparison of a Fractal Smoke Optics Model With Light Extinction Measurements
Published: 1/1/1994
Authors: R A Dobbins, George William Mulholland, Nelson P Bryner
Abstract: Optical cross-sections of carbonaceous aggregates (smoke) formed by combustion sources have been computed based on fractal concepts. Specific extinction depends upon the primary particle size, the structure of the aggregate as represented by the frac ...

68. Ground-Based Smoke Sampling Techniques Training Course and Collaborative Local Smoke Sampling in Saudi Arabia (NISTIR 5306)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5306
Published: 1/1/1994
Authors: Nelson P Bryner, Bruce A Benner Jr
Abstract: Smoke and gaseous emissions such as those generated by multiple oil-well fires can significantly impact the health of the local population. To assess the immediate risk to public health, the chemical and physical properties of the smoke and gaseous e ...

69. Radiometric Model of the Transmission Cell-Reciprocal Nephelometer
Published: 1/1/1994
Authors: George William Mulholland, Nelson P Bryner
Abstract: A radiometric model has been developed to assess the effects of angular truncation, finite size of the detector, and angle response characteristics of the cosine sensor on the measurement of the total scattering coefficient by a transmission cell-rec ...

70. Production Mechanisms for Carbon Monoxide in Enclosure Fires
Published: 3/15/1993
Authors: William M Pitts, Nelson P Bryner, Erik L Johnsson
Abstract: Roughly two thirds of all deaths resulting from enclosure fires can be attributed to the presence of carbon monoxide (CO), which is known to be the dominant toxicant in fire deaths. The mechanisms responsible for the generation of high concentrations ...
