1. Aircraft Cargo Area Fire Detection (NISTIR 6146)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6146
Published: 3/1/1998
Authors: D Blake, J O'Sullivan, S Hammann, M L Kolleck, Thomas George Cleary
Abstract: Overviews of fire deteciton in aircraft cargo areas were presented by David Blake of the Federal Aviation Administration, John O'Sullivan of British Airways, Scott Hammann of Boeing Company, and Matt Koleck ofBooz-Allen & Hamilton. The breakout disc ...

2. Aircraft Cargo Compartment Fire and Nuisance Source Test in the FE/DE (NIST SP 965)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 965
Published: 2/1/2001
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, Michelle K Donnelly
Abstract: Commercial transport aircraft cargo compartments require both fire detection and suppression capabilities in order to meet regulatory requirements. System reliability is very important since in many cases the cargo compartment is inaccessible during ...

3. Aspects of the Motor Vehicle Fire Threat From Flammable Liquid Spills on a Road Surface (NISTIR 6147)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6147
Published: 8/1/1998
Authors: Thomas J. Ohlemiller, Thomas George Cleary
Abstract: Spills of flammable liquids, particularly gasoline, pose a significant fire hazard subsequent to a motor vehicle crash. Various considerations pertaining to making quantitative estimates of the level of hazard are discussed here. These include preli ...

4. 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 ...

5. Distributed Sensor Fire Detection (NIST SP 965)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 965
Published: 2/1/2001
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, Kathy A. Notarianni
Abstract: This paper details a case study that utilized model simulations to assess the relative performance benefits of distributed sensing over single-station, single-sensor smoke detection and co-located multi-sensor detection. 500 individual CFAST compute ...

6. Effect of Ignition Conditions on Upward Flame Spread on a Composite Material in a Corner Configuration
Published: 11/1/1998
Authors: Thomas J. Ohlemiller, Thomas George Cleary, John R Shields
Abstract: This paper focuses on the issue of fire growth on composite materials beyond the region immediately subjected to an ignition source. Suppression of this is one of the key issues in realizing the safe usage of composite structural materials. A vinyl ...

7. 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 ...

8. Enhanced Residential Fire Detection by Combining Smoke and CO Sensors (SP 965)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 965
Published: 2/1/2001
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, T Ono
Abstract: This paper details an experimental program that gathered photoelectric and ionization analog output smoke sensor, thermal sensor, and an electrochemical CO sensor output signals during exposure to various fire and non-fire stimuli reproduced in the ...

9. Evaluating Multi-Sensor Fire Detectors in the Fire Emulator/Detector Evaluator
Published: 6/29/1999
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, Michael D. Anderson, Jason D Averill, William L Grosshandler
Abstract: NIST has developed the Fire Emulator/Detector Evaluator (FE/DE) for the purpose of testing detectors in a controlled environment. The FE/DE is a flow tunnel where fire or nuisance source characteristics can be controlled so that a detector placed in ...

10. Evaluation of Fire Detection Technology for Suitability in Aircraft Cargo Compartments
Report Number: 6242
Published: 11/2/1998
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, William L Grosshandler
Abstract: NIST is assisting the FAA in its research to improve fire detection in Class C and D aircraft cargo compartments. Class C and D compartments are inaccessible in flight. Class C compartments are required to have detection and suppression systems inst ...
