71. 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 ...

72. 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 ...

73. 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 ...

74. 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 ...

75. Use of Electrostatic Classification Method to Size 0.1 mum SRM Particles. A Feasibility Study
Published: 3/1/1991
Authors: P. D. Kinney, D. Y. H. Pui, George William Mulholland, Nelson P Bryner
Abstract: The use of the electrostatic classification method for sizing monodisperse 0.1 mum polystyrene latex (PSL) spheres has been investigated experimentally. The objective was to determine the feasibility of using electrostatic classification as a standar ...

76. Smoke Emission and Burning Rates for Urban Structures
Published: 1/1/1991
Authors: Nelson P Bryner, George William Mulholland
Abstract: Cribs, ordered arrays of sticks, were burned to mimic post-nuclear building fires. As the packing density of the cribs was increased to simulate blast damage, the smoke yield increased and the smoke changed from strongly light absorbing to whitish in ...

77. Laboratory Studies of Smoke Properties at NIST Past, Present, and Future
Published: 11/1/1990
Authors: George William Mulholland, Nelson P Bryner
Abstract: Burn facilities have been developed at NIST to measure the yield and optical properties of smoke at two fire scales. The small scale apparatus is used for burning samples about 10 cm in diameter (soup bowl size) and an intermediate scale apparatus is ...

78. Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbon Emissions from the Combustion of Crude Oil on Water
Published: 9/1/1990
Authors: Bruce A Benner Jr, Nelson P Bryner, Stephen Albert Wise, George William Mulholland, R. Lao, M. F. Fingas

79. Advances in Thermal Imaging Technology in the First Responder Arena
Published: Date unknown
Authors: Francine K. Amon, Nelson P Bryner
Abstract: The Building and Fire Research Laboratory (BFRL) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has been conducting research that will provide a quantifiable physical and scientific basis upon which industry standards for imaging perfor ...
