1. Feasibility Studies for Technologies to Effectively Scrub Soot from Small-Scale Fire Experiments
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8128
Published: 5/5/2016
Authors: Anthony P Hamins, Thomas George Cleary, Matthew F Bundy
Abstract: Elimination of particulate from fire exhaust streams is a common issue for fire labs. Two series of fire experiments were conducted in the National Fire Research Laboratory (NFRL) to test technologies for possible use in the filtration of soot fro ...

2. High Pressure Release and Dispersion of Hydrogen in a Partially Enclosed Compartment : Effect of Natural and Forced Ventilation
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Published: 9/2/2013
Authors: Kuldeep R Prasad, Thomas George Cleary, Jiann C Yang
Abstract: The study of compressed hydrogen release from high-pressure storage systems has practical application for hydrogen and fuel cell technologies. Such releases may occur either due to accidental damage to a storage tank or connecting piping, or due to ...

3. Smoke Alarm Performance in Kitchen Fires and Nuisance Alarm Scenarios
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Published: 2/6/2013
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, Artur A Chernovsky
Abstract: Tests were conducted to assess the performance of various residential smoke alarms to kitchen fires and nuisance alarm cooking scenarios. A test structure representing a kitchen, living room and hallway was constructed to conduct the tests. Eight d ...

4. A Literature Review of the Effects of Fire Smoke on Electrical Equipment
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1769
Published: 7/31/2012
Authors: Richard D Peacock, Thomas George Cleary, Paul A Reneke, Daniel Murphy
Abstract: A review is presented of the state of the art of smoke production measurement, prediction of smoke impact as part of computer-based fire modeling, and measurement and prediction of the impact of smoke through deposition of soot on and corrosion of el ...

5. An Analysis of the Performance of Smoke Alarms
Published: 6/21/2011
Author: Thomas George Cleary
Abstract: Test results from the NIST 2008 Smoke Alarm Sensitivity Study were used in a smoke alarm performance analysis to examine the effects of pre-movement time, reduced travel speeds through smoke, and smoke optical density limit on occupant survivability ...

6. High Pressure Release and Dispersion of Hydrogen in a Partially Enclosed Compartment
Published: 3/1/2011
Authors: Kuldeep R Prasad, Thomas George Cleary, William M Pitts, Jiann C Yang
Abstract: The study of compressed hydrogen release from high-pressure storage systems has practical application for hydrogen and fuel cell technologies. Such releases may occur either due to accidental damage to a storage tank or connecting piping, or direct ...

7. Development of Rapidly Deployable Instrumentation Packages for Real Time Data Acquisition in Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) Fires
Published: 8/1/2010
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Seul-Hyun Park, Thomas George Cleary
Abstract: In an effort to quantify structure ignition mechanisms during WUI fires, rapidly deployable instrumentation packages are being developed. For a structure under a WUI fire attack, the packages are designed to: (1) provide temporally resolved images o ...

9. Performance of Dual Photoelectric/ Ionization Smoke Alarms in Full-Scale Fire Tests
Published: 3/25/2010
Author: Thomas George Cleary
Abstract: Data from two full-scale residential smoke alarm fire test series were analyzed to estimate the performance of dual sensor photoelectric/ionization alarms as compared to co-located individual photoelectric and ionization alarms. Dual alarms and ag ...
