101. Flammability Characterization of Foam Plastics (NISTIR 4664)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 4664
Published: 10/1/1991
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, James Quintiere
Abstract: The results of a study to identify an alternative test protocol to the Steiner Tunnel Test as a measure of flammability for foamed plastic are presented. New fire test apparatuses namely the Cone Calorimeter and Lateral Ignition and Flame Spread app ...

102. Framework for Utilizing Fire Property Tests (NISTIR 4619)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 4619
Published: 8/1/1991
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, J. G. Quintiere
Abstract: A complete approximate set of equations is developed to describe fire spread over a surface and its resultant energy release. Wall, floor, and ceiling orientations are considered. The needed model data are couched in terms of available test method r ...

103. Detection of Smoke From Microgravity Fires
Published: Date unknown
Authors: D L Urban, DeVon Griffin, Gary Ruff, Thomas George Cleary, Jiann C Yang, George William Mulholland, Zeng-guang Yuan
Abstract: The history and current status of spacecraft smoke detection is discussed including a review of the state of understanding of the effect of gravity on the resultant smoke particle size. The results from a spacecraft experiment (Comparative Soot Diagn ...

104. Ignition of Mulch by Firebrands in Wildland/Urban Interface (WUI) Fires
Published: Date unknown
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, John R Shields, Thomas George Cleary, Jiann C Yang
Abstract: Firebrands or embers are produced as trees and structures burn in wildland/urban interface (WUI) fires. Hot firebrands ultimately come to rest and may ignite fuels far removed from the fire, resulting in fire spread. It is believed that firebrand s ...

105. Moment Method for Obtaining Particle Size Measures of Test Smokes
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7050
Published: Date unknown
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, D W Weinert, George William Mulholland
Abstract: The number concentration, ionization chamber output, and mass concentration were recorded continuously for five different test smokes generated in the fire emulator/detector evaluator. The number and the mass concentrations are direct measures of t ...

106. Recent Developments in Building Fire Detection Technologies
Published: Date unknown
Authors: William L Grosshandler, Jason D Averill, Thomas George Cleary, D W Weinert
Abstract: Sensing technologies and their application to detecting fires in buildings continue to evolve, and recent advances are summarized in this article. Work being conducted at NIST on characterizing smoke and on bench-scale evaluation of multi-element d ...

107. Time Resolved Size Distributions of Test Smokes and Nuisance Aerosols
Published: Date unknown
Author: Thomas George Cleary
Abstract: An electrical low-pressure impactor (ELPI) has been used to measure the size distribution of various test smokes and nuisance aerosols generated in the fire emulator/detector evaluator (FE/DE). Previously reported size results were time-averaged val ...

108. Video Detection and Monitoring of Smoke Conditions
Published: Date unknown
Author: Thomas George Cleary
Abstract: Initial tests have been performed to assess detection limits and smoke obscuration monitoring for a video scene under different lighting and smoke concentration conditions. An illuminated exit sign located in the fire emulator/detector evaluator duc ...
