11. Testing the Performance of Hydrogen Sensors
Published: 9/8/2009
Authors: Nathan D Marsh, Thomas George Cleary
Abstract: The acceptance of hydrogen as a widely-available energy source will depend to some extent on the perceived and actual safe dispensing and storage of hydrogen by the general public. Reliable detection of an accidental hydrogen gas release and mitigat ...

12. Investigation on the Ability of Glowing Firebrands Deposited Within Crevices to Ignite Common Building Materials
Published: 8/3/2009
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Seul-Hyun Park, Thomas George Cleary
Abstract: A series of experiments were conducted to determine the range of conditions that glowing firebrands may ignite common building materials. The surface temperature of glowing firebrands burning under different applied air flow was quantified using an ...

14. Performance of Dual Photoelectric/Ionization Smoke Alarms in Full-scale Fire Tests
Published: 2/27/2009
Author: Thomas George Cleary
Abstract: Data from two full-scale residential smoke alarm fire test series was analyzed to estimate the performance of dual sensor photoelectric/ionization alarms as compared to co-located individual photoelectric and ionization alarms. Dual alarms and aggre ...
