31. Advanced Technology for Fire Suppression in Aircraft
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1069
Published: 11/6/2007
Author: Richard George Gann
Abstract: In its decade of systematic research (1997-2006), the NGP revitalized the field of fire suppression science. The NGP arose as a result of a discovery that garnered the Nobel Prize for two accomplished chemists and legislation that turned science int ...

32. Improving Survivability in Motor Vehicle Fires
Published: 9/5/2007
Authors: Ken H Digges, Richard George Gann, Steve J Grayson, Marcelo M Hirschler, Richard E. Lyon, David A Purser, Jim G Quintiere, Rody R Stephenson, Archie Tewarson
Abstract: Automobile fires are consistently among the largest causes of fire deaths in the United States and the U.S. motor vehicle industry has spent $14 million over the last ten years studying this problem. The authors of this review have analyzed the auto ...

33. Assessing the Accuracy of a Physical Fire Model for Obtaining Smoke Toxic Potency Data.
Published: 9/3/2007
Authors: Richard George Gann, Jason D Averill, Nathan D Marsh, Marc R. Nyden
Abstract: A principal component of the engineering of a building is providing for the safety of occupants and responders in the event of a fire. This includes estimation of the time available for people to escape or to find safe refuge within. An accurate, qua ...

36. Papers From 1991-2006 Halon Options Technical Working Conferences (HOTWC)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 984-4
Published: 8/1/2006
Authors: Richard George Gann, Star R. Burgess, Kathleen C Whisner, Paul A Reneke
Abstract: As a result of the 1987 Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer and the 1990 U.S. Clean Air Act, there began a movement toward phaseout of the use of the halon fire suppressants. The HOTWC was initiated as a forum for such contr ...
