73. Test Fire Signatures and the Fire-Emulator/Detector-Evaluation (NISTIR 6030)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6030
Published: 6/1/1997
Authors: William L Grosshandler, Thomas George Cleary
Abstract: Existing methods for evaluating the performance of smoke and thermal detectors are reviewed. The levels of combustion gases, smoke, temperature and velocity likely to be produced in the European standard detector test fires are discussed, and this i ...

74. Effect of Sample Size on the Heat Release Rate of Charring Materials
Published: 3/3/1997
Authors: S J Ritchie, Kenneth David Steckler, Anthony P Hamins, Thomas George Cleary, Jiann C Yang, Takashi Kashiwagi
Abstract: The burning of a horizontal wood slab situated atop an insulating substrate was modeled using three coupled submodels for the gas-phase, wood, and substrate processes. A global analytical model was used to determine the radiative and convective heat ...
