21. Strategic Roadmap for Fire Risk Reduction in Buildings and Communities
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1130
Published: 4/18/2012
Authors: Anthony P Hamins, Jason D Averill, Richard George Gann, Nelson P Bryner, Rick D Davis, David T Butry, Alexander Maranghides, Jiann C Yang, Daniel Madrzykowski, Matthew F Bundy, Samuel L Manzello, Jeffrey W Gilman, Francine K. Amon, William E. Mell
Abstract: The burden of fire on the U.S. economy continues to be large, comprising approximately $280 billion annually, or 2 percent of GDP. Over the last 30 years, civilian fire deaths and injuries have decreased due to the efforts of many people and org ...

22. Durable nanoparticle coatings to reduce polyurethane foam flammability
Published: 3/24/2012
Authors: Yeon Seok Kim, Rick D Davis
http://www.nist.gov/manuscript-publication-search.cfm?pub_id=909889

23. Flexible polyurethane foam with well characterized and reproducible smoldering
Published: 3/24/2012
Authors: Mauro Zammarano, Szabolcs Matko, Rick D Davis, Roland H. Kraemer
Abstract: Smoldering is a self-sustaining heterogeneous oxidation reaction that induces a slow, low temperature, flameless combustion.1 Flexible polyurethane foams (PUF) are particularly prone to smoldering due to their high air permeability and low density. I ...

24. Self-extinguishable of Non-toxic Layer-by-Layer Coating on Flexible Polyurethane Foam
Published: 3/24/2012
Authors: Yu-Chin Li, Rick D Davis
http://www.nist.gov/manuscript-publication-search.cfm?pub_id=909912

25. Assessment of Factors Affecting Fire Performance of Mattresses: A Review
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1740
Published: 3/20/2012
Authors: Shonali Nazare, Rick D Davis
Abstract: An in-depth analysis of U.S. residential fire statistics shows that although the total number of fires and deaths due to mattress fires has dropped as a result of several regulatory approaches, the number of deaths per 1000 mattress/bedding fires ...

27. Exposure and Fire Hazard Assessment of Nanoparticles in Fire Safe Consumer Products: Interagency Agreement Final Report
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7805
Published: 8/4/2011
Authors: Rick D Davis, Yeon Seok Kim, Richard H. Harris Jr., Marc R. Nyden, Nasir M. Uddin, Treye Thomas
Abstract: An innovative technology was evaluated to generate fire and health safe soft furnishings. Nanoparticle-based thin coatings on a polyurethane foam and nonwoven barrier fabric were applied using Layer-by-layer (Lbl) assembly. This is the first report ...

28. Characterization of Nanoparticle Release from Polymer Nanocomposites Due to Fire
Published: 7/6/2011
Authors: Nasir M. Uddin, Marc R. Nyden, Rick D Davis
Abstract: Engineered nanoparticles, such as carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and nanofibers (CNFs) are increasingly being used as fire retardants and performance additives in polymeric materials. However, because of their small size and ability to interact with biologi ...
