91. A Research Program to Determine When and How to Include Sublethal Effects of Smoke in Fire Safety Decisions
Published: 3/7/2000
Author: Richard George Gann
Abstract: It has long been realized that the sublethal effects of smoke can affect survival in fires, but only sparse data were available on which to base fire safety decisions. A recent draft standard under consideration in the International Standards Organi ...

Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6163
Published: 1/7/1999
Author: Richard George Gann
Abstract: The Next-Generation Fire Suppression Program (NGP), now in its second year, has as its goal the development by 2004 of alternative firefighting technologies to Halon 1301 that can be economically implemented in aircraft, ships, land combat vehicles ...

94. A methodology for obtaining and using toxic potency data for fire hazard analysis
Published: 11/1/1998
Authors: Vyto Babrauskas, Richard George Gann, Barbara C. Levin, M Paabo, Richard H. Harris Jr., Richard D Peacock

95. 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 ...

96. 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 ...

97. Conclusion.
Published: 11/1/1995
Author: Richard George Gann
Abstract: This report presents the results of two years of research in support of the objective to identify and make ready for use the optimal near-term fluid to replace halon 1301 for in-flight fire suppression in aircraft engine nacelles and dry bays. At the ...

98. 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 ...

99. 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 ...

100. 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 ...
