91. 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 ...

92. 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 ...

93. 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 ...

94. 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 ...

95. 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 ...

96. Computing Radiative Heat Transfer Occurring in a Zone Fire Model
Published: 11/1/1991
Author: Glenn P Forney
Abstract: Radiation, convection and conduction are the three mechanisms which a zone fire model must consider when calculating the heat transfer between fires, wall surfaces and room gases. Radiation dominates the other two modes of heat transfer in rooms whe ...
