11. Droplet/Surface Interaction: Relevance to Fire Suppression
Published: 1/5/2011
Author: Anthony P Hamins
Abstract: Due to the ban of Halon 1301 under the Montreal Protocol, new liquid fire suppressants have been proposed as possible alternatives to Halon 1301 in certain fires. It has been reported that in the case of water mist fire suppression systems, a large ...

12. Evaluation of a Two-Dimensional Simulation of Low Strain Rate Nonpremixed Counterflow Flames
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6839
Published: 1/5/2011
Authors: W Park, Anthony P Hamins, Kevin B McGrattan
Abstract: A mixture fraction formulation is used to numerically simulate the two-dimensional structure of diluted axisymmetric methane-air nonpremixed counterflow flames. The size of the computational domain and the grid spacing are selected based on negligibl ...

13. Suppression Limits of Low Strain Rate Non-Premixed Flames
Published: 1/5/2011
Authors: Matthew F Bundy, Anthony P Hamins
Abstract: The suppression of low strain rate non-premixed flames was investigated experimentally in a counterflow configuration through the development of a methodology that allows establishment of laminar flames free from conductive heat losses. The method al ...

14. Chemical Species and Temperature Mapping in Full Scale Underventilated Compartment Fires
Published: 7/5/2010
Authors: Andrew J. Lock, Matthew F Bundy, Erik L Johnsson, Kelly M Opert, Anthony P Hamins, Cheolhong Hwang, Ki Yong Lee
Abstract: Many injuries and deaths throughout the world are caused by fires each year. Many of the deaths are the result of toxic gas inhalation, such as carbon monoxide, by a victim remote from the actual fire source. In order to facilitate better building st ...

15. Proceedings of the 2009 Workshop on Innovative Fire Protection
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1662
Published: 2/17/2010
Authors: Anthony P Hamins, Francine K. Amon, Jason D Averill, Nelson P Bryner, David T Butry, Rick D Davis, Richard George Gann, Jeffrey W Gilman, Samuel L Manzello, Randall Joseph McDermott, William E. Mell, Nathan D Marsh
Abstract: The Innovative Fire Protection Workshop was held at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) on June 4 and 5, 2009. The 70 participants represented a broad range of stakeholder perspectives, including various non-profit, academic, i ...

16. Mixture Fraction Analysis of Combustion Products in the Upper Layer of Reduced-Scaled Compartment Fire
Published: 2/1/2009
Authors: Gwon Ko, Anthony P Hamins, Matthew F Bundy, Erik L Johnsson, Sung C Kim, David Lenhert
Abstract: A mixture fraction analysis is performed to investigate the characteristics of chemical species production in smoky compartment fires burning condensed-phase hydrocarbon fuels. A series of fire experiments were conducted in a 2/5 scale compartment ba ...

17. Meaningful Performance Evalution Conditions for Fire Service Thermal Imaging Cameras
Published: 11/1/2008
Authors: Francine K. Amon, Anthony P Hamins, Nelson P Bryner, Justin Rowe
Abstract: Thermal imaging cameras (TIC) are rapidly becoming integral equipment for the fire service for use in structure fires and other emergencies. The Building and Fire Research Laboratory (BFRL) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology has co ...

18. On the Temperature Measurement Bias and Time Response of an Aspirated Thermocouple in Fire Environment
Published: 11/1/2008
Authors: Sung C. Kim, Anthony P Hamins
Abstract: To examine the uncertainty of thermocouple temperature measurements, the present study uses numerical simulations and analytical solutions to investigate the heat transfer processes associated with double shield aspirated thermocouple. This study is ...

19. Experimental Study of the Effects of Fuel Type, Fuel Distribribution, and Vent Size on Full-Scale Underventilated Compartment Fires in an ISO 9705 Room (NIST TN 1603)
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1603
Published: 10/1/2008
Authors: Andrew J. Lock, Matthew F Bundy, Erik L Johnsson, Anthony P Hamins, Gwon Ko, Cheolhong Hwang, Stephen P. Fuss, Richard H. Harris Jr.
Abstract: This report describes new full-scale ISO9705 compartment fire experiments, which include local measurements of temperature and species composition. The objective of this study was to generate a database of comprehensive and accurate measurements whi ...

20. Fire Induced Thermal and Structural Response of the World Trade Center Towers
Published: 9/26/2008
Authors: Kuldeep R Prasad, Anthony P Hamins, Therese P McAllister, John L Gross
Abstract: Over the past several years, there has been a resurgence of interest in studying the response of building structures to fires. Typically, the thermal loading for structural analysis of a building subject to fire is obtained from a standard time-tempe ...
