71. Issues in Evaluation of Complex Fire Models
Published: 1/1/1998
Authors: Richard D Peacock, Paul A Reneke, Glenn P Forney, M. M. Kostreva
Abstract: Several methods of evaluation of the predictive capability have been applied to fire models, but with limited utility. These range from explicit evaluation of the equations used in simple models such as ASET to pointwise evaluation of complex models ...

72. User's Guide for FAST: Engineering Tools for Estimating Fire Growth and Smoke Transport (NIST SP 921)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 921
Published: 10/1/1997
Authors: Richard D Peacock, Paul A Reneke, Walter William Jones, Richard W. Bukowski, Glenn P Forney
Abstract: FAST is a collection of fire modeling tools which uses the underlying fire model CFAST and adds the routines of FIREFORM to provide engineering calculations of fire phenomena in compartmented structures. This manual provides documentation and exampl ...

74. Note on Improving Corridor Floor Predictions in a Zone Fire Model (NISTIR 6046)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6046
Published: 7/1/1997
Author: Glenn P Forney
Abstract: Presently, the Consolidated Fire and Smoke Transport Model zone fire model (CFAST) assumes that smoke travels instantly from one side of a compartment to another. As a result, upper layers start forming in compartments connected to the end of long c ...

75. 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 ...

76. 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 ...

77. Comparison of CFAST Predictions to Real Scale Fire Tests
Published: 10/15/1996
Authors: Walter William Jones, J. L. Bailey, P. A. Tatem, Glenn P Forney
Abstract: This paper describes a new algorithm of the Consolidated Fire Growth and Smoke Transport (CFAST) fire model and compares to data from real scale fire tests conducted onboard the ex-USS SHADWELL, the Navy's R&D Damage Control Platform. The new phenom ...

80. 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 ...
