82. Simulating the Effect of Flat Beamed Ceiling on Detector and Sprinkler Response
Published: 11/6/1994
Authors: Glenn P Forney, Richard W. Bukowski, William D. Davis
Abstract: This paper documents a portion of 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 res ...

83. 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 ...

85. 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 ...

86. 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 ...

87. 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 ...

88. Pressure Equations in Zone-Fire Modeling
Published: 1/1/1994
Authors: Ronald G. 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 ...

90. 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 ...
