81. 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 ...

84. 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 ...

87. 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 ...

89. An Update Guide for HAZARD I Version 1.2
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5410
Published: 5/1/1994
Authors: Richard D Peacock, Walter William Jones, Glenn P Forney, Paul A Reneke, Richard W. Bukowski, J H. Klote
Abstract: A method for quantifying the hazards to occupants of buildings from fires, and the relative contribution of specific products (e.g., furniture, wire insulation) to those hazards is presented. This method,called HAZARD I, combines expert judgment ...

90. Human Exposure and Environmental Impact
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 861
Published: 4/1/1994
Authors: E Braun, Richard D Peacock, Glenn P Forney, George William Mulholland, Barbara C. Levin
Abstract: Although these agents are typically employed in unoccupied sections of an aircraft, the possibility of human exposure still exists during handling, storage, and transport. Thus, it is important to know if the accidental release of the 12 agents in a ...
