81. 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 ...

82. 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 ...

83. Analyzing and Exploiting Numerical Characteristics of Zone Fire Models
Published: 1/1/1994
Authors: Glenn P Forney, W F Moss
Abstract: In order to design robust and stable zone fire modeling algorithms, the numerical properties of computer arithmetic and modeling differential equations must be understood. This report examines some of these properties and provides tools for their an ...

84. Pressure Equations in Zone-Fire Modeling
Published: 1/1/1994
Authors: Ronald George Rehm, Glenn P Forney
Abstract: The nonadiabatic nature of low-speed combustion and fire, in which strongly exothermic reactions produce large temperature variations but only mild pressure variations, can cause difficulty when integrating zone models of enclosure fires. Examples o ...

85. Field Modeling: Effects of Flat Beamed Ceilings on Detector and Sprinkler Response. International Fire Detection Research Project. Technical Report. Year 1
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Published: 10/1/1993
Authors: Glenn P Forney, Richard W. Bukowski, William D. Davis
Abstract: This report documents the work performed during the first year of the International Fire Detection Research Project sponsored by the National Fire Protection Research Foundation (NFPRF). The first task was to confirm that fire sensor response can be ...

86. Zone Fire Modeling With Natural Building Flows and a Zero Order Shaft Model (NISTIR 5251)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5251
Published: 9/1/1993
Authors: J H. Klote, Glenn P Forney
Abstract: This paper addresses applications of zone fire models to simulate smoke flow in multistory buildings. Natural flows in buildings are discussed. A zero order model for shaft smoke flow was developed which treated the shaft as one perfectly mixed zone ...

87. CFAST, the Consolidated Model for Fire Growth and Smoke Transport
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1299
Published: 1/7/1993
Authors: Richard D Peacock, Glenn P Forney, Paul A Reneke, Walter William Jones
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 f ...

88. Improvement in Predicting Smoke Movement in Compartmented Structures
Published: 1/1/1993
Authors: Walter William Jones, Glenn P Forney
Abstract: This paper describes improvements which have been made in the CFAST model of fire growth and smoke transport for compartmented structures. In particular, we are interested in the ability to model the movement of toxic gases from the room of origin o ...

89. Simulating the Effect of Beamed Ceilings on Smoke Flow. Part 1. Comparison of Numerical and Experimental Results (NISTIR 4994)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 4994
Published: 12/1/1992
Authors: Glenn P Forney, William D. Davis, J H. Klote
Abstract: The flow of smoke under beamed ceilings is simulated using a field model. This work was performed in order to confirm that fire detector response can be evaluated using computational data obtained from numerical simulations as well as laboratory dat ...

90. Note on the Pressure Equations Used in Zone Fire Modeling (NISTIR 4906)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 4906
Published: 8/1/1992
Authors: Ronald George Rehm, Glenn P Forney
Abstract: Examples of simple zone fire models are analyzed. These models illustrate the nature of the numerical problems commonly encountered in zone models of enclosure fires. Often these difficulties arise in the solution of the equations for the pressure i ...
