1. Analyzing Strategies for Eliminating Flame Blow-down Occurring in the Navy's 19F4 Fire Fighting Trainer (NISTIR 4825)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 4825
Published: 5/1/1992
Authors: Glenn P Forney, William D. Davis
Abstract: The purpose of this report is to document a series of numerical experiments performed to analyze strategies for eliminating flame blow-down occurring in the Navy's 19F4 fire fighting training. The first strategy involves the use of a fence in the wa ...

2. 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 ...

4. 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 ...

5. Computing Radiative Heat Transfer Occurring in a Zone Fire Model
Published: 11/1/1991
Author: Glenn P Forney
Abstract: Radiation, convection and conduction are the three mechanisms which a zone fire model must consider when calculating the heat transfer between fires, wall surfaces and room gases. Radiation dominates the other two modes of heat transfer in rooms whe ...

7. 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 ...
