71. Method for Computing Heat Transfer Between Connected Compartments in a Zone Fire Model (NISTIR 6190)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6190
Published: 7/1/1998
Authors: Glenn P Forney, W F Moss
Abstract: This note describes a method for calculating conductive heat transfer between connected compartments in a zone fire model. The conduction problem is solved by dividing a compartment into six partitions corresponding to the floor and ceiling and the ...

73. Using Sensor Data to Predict the Environment in a Building
Published: 2/25/1998
Authors: Walter William Jones, Richard D Peacock, Glenn P Forney, Paul A Reneke
Abstract: As transducers become more commonplace in the built environment, it is desirable to utilize this information in a more complete way to assure safety. There are two fi to doing this, incorporating our knowledge of fires and other extreme events into ...

74. Field Modeling: Simulating the Effects of HVAC Induced Air Flow From Various Diffusers and Returns on Detector Response. International Fire Detection Research Project. Year 4 Report/Data
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Published: 1/1/1998
Authors: J H. Klote, William D. Davis, Glenn P Forney, 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 ...

75. 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 ...

76. 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 ...

78. 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 ...
