71. Developing Detector Siting Rules From Computational Experiments in Spaces With Complex Geometries
Published: 1/1/1997
Authors: William D. Davis, Glenn P Forney, Richard W. Bukowski
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is conducting a four-year research project where in a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) computer code is utilized to map temperature, flow velocities, and particle densities in spaces with c ...

72. Simulating the Effects of HVAC Induced Air Flow From Slot Diffusers on Detector Response (NISTIR 5908)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5908
Published: 12/1/1996
Authors: J H. Klote, Glenn P Forney, William D. Davis, Richard W. Bukowski
Abstract: Rapid activation of fire protection systems in response to a growing fire is one of the important factors required to provide for life safety and property protection. Airflow due to the heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) system can sig ...

76. Computing the Effect of Sprinkler Sprays on Fire Induced Gas Flow
Published: 9/10/1995
Authors: Glenn P Forney, Kevin B McGrattan
Abstract: Over the last twenty years there has been much debate concerning the interaction of sprinklers and draft curtains in large storage facilities. At issue is whether or not the two fire protection systems are mutually beneficial. It has been suggested ...

79. Simulating the Effect of Sloped Beamed Ceilings on Detector and Sprinkler Response (NISTIR 5499)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5499
Published: 10/17/1994
Authors: William D. Davis, Glenn P Forney, Richard W. Bukowski
Abstract: The rapid activation of fire detection and suppression systems in response to a growing fire is one of the important factors required to provide for life safety and property protection. Rapid activation requires that sensors be located at optimal di ...
