1. Evaluating Multi-Sensor Fire Detectors in the Fire Emulator/Detector Evaluator
Published: 6/29/1999
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, Michael D. Anderson, Jason D Averill, William L Grosshandler
Abstract: NIST has developed the Fire Emulator/Detector Evaluator (FE/DE) for the purpose of testing detectors in a controlled environment. The FE/DE is a flow tunnel where fire or nuisance source characteristics can be controlled so that a detector placed in ...

2. Evaluation of Fire Detection Technology for Suitability in Aircraft Cargo Compartments
Report Number: 6242
Published: 11/2/1998
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, William L Grosshandler
Abstract: NIST is assisting the FAA in its research to improve fire detection in Class C and D aircraft cargo compartments. Class C and D compartments are inaccessible in flight. Class C compartments are required to have detection and suppression systems inst ...

4. Fire Emulator/Detector Evaluator: Design, Operation, and Performance (NIST SP 965)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 965
Published: 2/1/2001
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, Michelle K Donnelly, William L Grosshandler
Abstract: This paper describes the fire emulator/detector evaluator which was developed by NIST. The FE/DE has proven to be a very flexible design. The main function of the device is to reproduce the environment (temperature, air velocity, aerosol and gas spe ...

5. Signatures of Smoldering/Pyrolyzing Fires for Multi-Element Detector Evaluation
Published: 3/26/1996
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, William L Grosshandler, Marc R. Nyden, William J. Rinkinen
Abstract: Levels of CO, CO2, H2O, hydrocarbons, smoke, temperature and velocity produced in the plumes of smoldering/pyrolyzing wood and smoldering cotton fires are reported, following test protocols described for evaluating automatic fire detection systems. ...

6. Survey of Fire Detection Technologies and System Evaluation/Certification Methodologies and Their Suitablity for Aircraft Cargo Compartments (NISTIR 6356)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6356
Published: 7/1/1999
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, William L Grosshandler
Abstract: As part of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) initiated program on global civil aviation, NIST is assisting the Federal Aviation Administration in its research to improve fire detection in aircraft cargo compartments. Improved ...

7. Test Fire Signatures and the Fire-Emulator/Detector-Evaluation (NISTIR 6030)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6030
Published: 6/1/1997
Authors: William L Grosshandler, Thomas George Cleary
Abstract: Existing methods for evaluating the performance of smoke and thermal detectors are reviewed. The levels of combustion gases, smoke, temperature and velocity likely to be produced in the European standard detector test fires are discussed, and this i ...

8. Acoustic Emission of Structural Materials Exposed to Open Flames
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 4984
Published: 12/1/1992
Authors: William L Grosshandler, M A Jackson
Abstract: The use of acoustic emission (AE) as an early indicator of structural materials exposed to a flame has been investigated and found to be possible. Piezoelectric transducers have been mounted directly on 0.5 m long, simply supported beams of aluminum, ...
