91. NIST/NBS Fire Research and FRCA: 25 Years of Progress
Published: 4/16/1998
Author: Richard George Gann
Abstract: The National Bureau of Standards' Center for Fire Research and the Fire Retardant Chemicals Association were formed within a year of each other. The former has undergone major organizational changes, NBS having become NIST, and fire research now bein ...

92. Methodology for Obtaining and Using Toxic Potency Data for Fire Hazard Analysis
Published: 1/1/1998
Authors: Vyto Babrauskas, Richard George Gann, Barbara C. Levin, M Paabo, Richard H. Harris Jr., Richard D Peacock, S Yusa
Abstract: A comprehensive methodology has been developed for obtaining and using smoke toxicity data for fire hazard analysis. This description of the methodology comprises (1) determination that the post-flashover fire is the proper focus of smoke inhalation ...

93. Quantifying the Ignition Propensity of Cigarettes
Published: 7/1/1995
Authors: Thomas J. Ohlemiller, K M Villa, E Braun, K Eberhardt, Richard H. Harris Jr., James R. Lawson, Richard George Gann
Abstract: Research funded under the Fire Safe Cigarette Act of 1990 (United States Public Law 101-35) has led to the development of two test methods for measuring the ignition propensity of cigarettes. The Mock-Up Ignition Test Method uses substrates physical ...

94. Compatibility of Halon Alternatives During Storage
Published: 8/21/1994
Authors: Richard George Gann, Carlos R Beauchamp, Thomas George Cleary, J L. Fink, Richard H. Harris Jr., F Horkay, G B. McKenna, Thomas P Moffat, Marc R Nyden, Richard D Peacock, Richard E Ricker, Mark R Stoudt, W. K. Waldron
Abstract: A key facet of the evaluation of new fire suppressants is their behavior under pressure and at elevated temperature in a metal storage container with an elastomer seal. In this study, 13 candidate chemicals have been examines: C2F6, C3F8, C4F10, cycl ...

95. Fire Conditions for Smoke Toxicity Measurement
Published: 5/1/1994
Authors: Richard George Gann, V Babrauskas, Richard D Peacock, J R Hall
Abstract: This paper identifies those fire conditions most often present when smoke toxicity is the cause of death. It begins with a review of the evidence that smoke-inhalation deaths are in the majority in fire fatalities in the United States. Next, there i ...

97. Executive Summary (NIST SP 861)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 861
Published: 4/1/1994
Authors: William L. Grosshandler, Richard George Gann, William M Pitts
Abstract: Bromotrifluoromethane (halon 1301 or CF3Br) has been the fire-fighting agent of choice for decades to protect inaccessible spaces aboard aircraft in flight because of its inherent ability to inhibit combustion while possessing a high liquid density a ...

98. Introduction (NIST SP 861)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 861
Published: 4/1/1994
Authors: William L. Grosshandler, Richard George Gann, William M Pitts
Abstract: The Montreal Protocol of 1987 identified halon 1301 (CF3Br) as one of a number of halogenated chemicals that were sufficiently deleterious to stratospheric ozone that their continued production and use required limitation. An amendment to the Protoco ...

99. Summary and Recommendations (NIST SP 861)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 861
Published: 4/1/1994
Authors: William L. Grosshandler, Richard George Gann, William M Pitts
Abstract: The main objective of this research program was to provide guidance to the sponsors on which materials to evaluate in the full-scale fire suppression test plan at Wright-Patterson AFB. Specifically, the recommendations were to include the following: ...
