91. Flow of Alternative Agents in Piping
Published: 1/1/1994
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, William L Grosshandler, Jiann C Yang
Abstract: As part of the USAF, Army, Navy and FAA sponsored halon replacement project, the pipe flow characteristics of selected alternative agents for engine nacelle tire protection are being studied. Due to the remote location of the agent storage bottle, ...

92. Simulation of Dry Bay Discharge of Alternative Agents
Series: OTHER
Published: 1/1/1994
Authors: Jiann C Yang, Thomas George Cleary, William L Grosshandler
Abstract: As a continuation of the USAF/Navy/Amy/FAA sponsored halon replacement project, the discharge characteristics of the three selected akernative agents (CFJ, FC-218. and HFC- 125) for dry bay applications will be further evaluated. Halon 1301 will al ...

93. Agent/System Compatibility for Halon 1301 Aviation Replacement
Published: 10/20/1993
Authors: Richard George Gann, E Braun, Thomas George Cleary, Richard H. Harris Jr., F Horkay, Gregory T Linteris, G B. McKenna, Marc R. Nyden, Richard D Peacock, Richard E Ricker, Mark R Stoudt, W. K. Waldron
Abstract: This project has developed measurement methods and provided data for the appraisal of 12 USAF-specified candidate halon 1301 replacements for compatibility with flight systems, people, and the environment. The exposures of metals, elastomers and lub ...

94. Assessing the Flammability of Composite Materials
Published: 7/30/1993
Authors: Thomas J. Ohlemiller, Thomas George Cleary, James E. Brown, John R Shields
Abstract: Composite materials offer the potential for substantial weight savings in the structure of both surface ships and submarines. However, the organic nature of the binder resins in these materials implies that one would be replacing non-flammable mater ...

95. Non-Halogenated, Flame Retarded Polycarbonate
Published: 2/9/1993
Authors: Takashi Kashiwagi, Thomas George Cleary, G C Davis, J H Lupinski
Abstract: Various flammability properties of a siloxane-containing bisphenol-A polycarbonate sample, with the siloxane as an additive or as a copolymer, were measured and compared with those of a pure polycarbonate sample. The results show that the peak heat ...

96. Effects of Sample Mounting on Flammability Properties of Intumescent Polymers
Published: 1/1/1993
Authors: Takashi Kashiwagi, Thomas George Cleary
Abstract: Various flammability properties of polycarbonate samples were measured with the Cone Calorimeter and Lateral Ignition and Flame Spread, LIFT, devices at various external fluxes. Four different sample mountings were used with the Cone Calorimeter to ...

97. New Generation of Fire Resistant Polymers. Part 2. Silicon-Containing Polycarbonate
Published: 10/27/1992
Authors: Takashi Kashiwagi, Thomas George Cleary
Abstract: Various flammability properties of a silicone-containing polycarbonate sample were measured and compared with those of a pure polycarbonate sample. The results show that peak heat release rate for the silicone-containing polycarbonate sample is sign ...

98. Influence of Ignition Source on the Flaming Fire Hazard of Upholstered Furniture (NISTIR 4847)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 4847
Published: 6/1/1992
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, Thomas J. Ohlemiller, K M Villa
Abstract: A set of upholstered chairs constructed from five different fabric/foam combinations was subjected to a variety of ignition sources suggested by fire statistics. The sources included a cigarette, a small match-like flame, an incandescent lamp, a spa ...

99. Flammability Characterization With the LIFT Apparatus and the Cone Calorimeter
Published: 3/29/1992
Author: Thomas George Cleary
Abstract: Two small-scale test apparatuses, the LIFT apparatus and the Cone Calorimeter provide ignitability, flame spread, and heat release rate data for combustible solid materials. Data gathered with these apparatuses can be reduced to a limited number of ...

100. Ultrafine Combustion Aerosol Generator
Published: 1/1/1992
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, George William Mulholland, Lewis K. Ives, Robert A Fletcher, J. W. Gentry
Abstract: We are able to produce a narrowly distributed combustion aerosol with a mean particle size of about 10 nm by operating a laminar diffusion burner with acetylene fuel in the nominal "presooting" condition. Number concentrations of approximately 106 p ...
