91. CFAST: The Consolidated Model of Fire Growth and Smoke Transport.
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1299
Published: 2/1/1993
Authors: Richard D Peacock, Glenn P Forney, Paul A Reneke, Walter William Jones, R W Portier
Abstract: CFAST is a zone model capable of predicting the environment in a multi-compartment structure subjected to a fire. It calculates the time evolving distribution of smoke and fire gases and the temperature throughout a building during a user-specified f ...

93. Improvement in Predicting Smoke Movement in Compartmented Structures
Published: 1/1/1993
Authors: Walter William Jones, Glenn P Forney
Abstract: This paper describes improvements which have been made in the CFAST model of fire growth and smoke transport for compartmented structures. In particular, we are interested in the ability to model the movement of toxic gases from the room of origin o ...

94. Simulating the Effect of Beamed Ceilings on Smoke Flow. Part 1. Comparison of Numerical and Experimental Results (NISTIR 4994)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 4994
Published: 12/1/1992
Authors: Glenn P Forney, William D. Davis, J H. Klote
Abstract: The flow of smoke under beamed ceilings is simulated using a field model. This work was performed in order to confirm that fire detector response can be evaluated using computational data obtained from numerical simulations as well as laboratory dat ...

95. Note on the Pressure Equations Used in Zone Fire Modeling (NISTIR 4906)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 4906
Published: 8/1/1992
Authors: Ronald G. Rehm, Glenn P Forney
Abstract: Examples of simple zone fire models are analyzed. These models illustrate the nature of the numerical problems commonly encountered in zone models of enclosure fires. Often these difficulties arise in the solution of the equations for the pressure i ...

96. Implicitly Coupling Heat Conduction Into a Zone Fire Model (NISTIR 4886)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 4886
Published: 7/1/1992
Authors: W F Moss, Glenn P Forney
Abstract: This report examines several methods for coupling the partial differential equations that arise in conductive heat transfer with the ordinary differential equations that arise in zone fire modeling. Two existing algorithms (method of lines and time ...

97. Modeling Smoke Movement Through Compartmented Structures (NISTIR 4872)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 4872
Published: 7/1/1992
Authors: Walter William Jones, Glenn P Forney
Abstract: This paper describes a model of fire growth and smoke transport for compartmented structures, with emphasis on those aspects which are important to making correct predicitons of smoke movement in multicompartment structures. In particular, we are in ...

98. Analyzing Strategies for Eliminating Flame Blow-down Occurring in the Navy's 19F4 Fire Fighting Trainer (NISTIR 4825)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 4825
Published: 5/1/1992
Authors: Glenn P Forney, William D. Davis
Abstract: The purpose of this report is to document a series of numerical experiments performed to analyze strategies for eliminating flame blow-down occurring in the Navy's 19F4 fire fighting training. The first strategy involves the use of a fence in the wa ...

99. Analyzing and Exploiting Numerical Characteristics of Zone Fire Models (NISTIR 4763)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 4763
Published: 3/1/1992
Authors: Glenn P Forney, W F Moss
Abstract: In order to design robust and stable zone fire modeling algorithms, the numerical properties of computer arithmetic and modeling differential equations must be understood. This report examines some of these properties and provides tools for their an ...

100. Molecular Modeling of Polymer Flammability: Application to the Design of Flame-Resistant Polyethylene
Published: 1/1/1992
Authors: Marc R. Nyden, Glenn P Forney, James E. Brown
Abstract: Molecular dyanmic simulations of the thermal degradation of polyethylene were used to idenfity factors which might be effective in reducing polymer flammability by promoting the formation of a residual char. Computer movies of the calculated traject ...
