31. Unwanted Accelerated Burning After Suppressant Delivery
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1004
Published: 9/2/2003
Authors: Anthony P Hamins, Kevin B McGrattan, Glenn P Forney
Abstract: In a number of real-scale fire tests, accelerated or enhanced unwanted burning has been observed immediately following the delivery of a fire suppressant. The conditions under which this phenomena occurs, its potential for harm, and its effect on the ...

32. Understanding Fire and Smoke Flow Through Modeling and Visualization
Published: 8/1/2003
Authors: Glenn P Forney, Daniel Madrzykowski, Kevin B McGrattan, L M Sheppard
Abstract: Structural fires cost the American economy more than $100 billion annually in property damage, maintaining fire departments and insurance. A price cannot be put on the human toll: on average each year, 4,000 civilians die and 23,000 are injured in fi ...

33. BFRL Publications, 2002
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 997
Published: 6/1/2003
Authors: Star R Burgess, Kathleen C Whisner, Glenn P Forney, Paul A Reneke
Abstract: Welcome to BFRL Publications, 2002. These two CD-ROMs contain publications produced by BFRL staff, publications resulting from contracts or grants with BFRL and publications contained in poceedings from BFRL sponsored conferences orworkshops. The Vol ...

34. A Technical Reference for CFAST: An Engineering Tool for Estimating Fire and Smoke Transport
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1431
Published: 4/1/2003
Authors: Walter William Jones, Glenn P Forney, Richard D Peacock, Paul A Reneke
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 ...

35. User's Guide for Smokeview Version 3.1 - A Tool for Visualizing Fire Dynamics Simulation Data
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6980
Published: 4/1/2003
Authors: Glenn P Forney, Kevin B McGrattan
Abstract: Smokeview is a software tool designed to visualize numerical predictions generated by the NIST Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS), a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model of fire-driven fluid flow. These two tools are typically used together to respec ...

36. Improvements to the NIST Fire Dynamics Simulator
Published: 1/1/2003
Authors: Kevin B McGrattan, J E. Floyd, Glenn P Forney, Howard Richard Baum, Simo A Hostikka
Abstract: A new version of the NIST Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS) was released in the fall of 2001. Improvements have been made to the combustion and radiation routines, allowing for better simulation of flashover. The combustion is based on a single transport ...

37. Future of Fire Simulation
Published: 12/1/2002
Authors: Kevin B McGrattan, Howard Richard Baum, Ronald George Rehm, Glenn P Forney, Kuldeep R Prasad
Abstract: Scientists and engineers are often asked to make predictions of the state of technology in the future and are usually laughably wrong. The best prognosticators get the trends right, but cannot possibly fill in the details. Think of Jules Verne predi ...

38. A Reactive Molecular Dynamics Model of Thermal Decomposition in Polymers: I.Poly(methyl methacrylate)
Published: 12/1/2002
Authors: S I Stoliarov, P R Westmoreland, Marc R. Nyden, Glenn P Forney
Abstract: The theory and implementation of Reactive Molecular Dynamics (RMD) are presented in the context of providing an overview of our own RMD computer code, MD_REACT. The capabilities of RMD and its potential use as a tool for investigating the mechanisms ...

39. Development and Validation of Corridor Flow Submodel for CFAST
Published: 11/1/2002
Authors: J. L. Bailey, Glenn P Forney, P. A. Tatem, Walter William Jones
Abstract: The modeling of fire and smoke spread is an evolving field. As knowledge is acquired and resources become available, models are enhanced to make their predictions more accurate and/or their computations faster. This paper will discuss the Consolidat ...

40. Fire Dynamics Simulator (Version 3): Users Guide (NISTIR 6748)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6748
Published: 11/1/2002
Authors: Kevin B McGrattan, Glenn P Forney, J E. Floyd, Simo A Hostikka, Kuldeep R Prasad
Abstract: Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS) is a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model of fire-driven fluid flow. The software described in this document solves numerically a form of the Navier-Stokes equations appropriate for low-speed, thermally-driven flow ...
