28. Measurements of Heat and Combustion Products in Reduced-Scale Ventilation-Limited Compartment Fires
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1483
Published: 7/10/2007
Authors: Matthew F Bundy, Anthony P Hamins, Erik L Johnsson, Sung C. Kim, Gwon Ko, David B. Lenhert
Abstract: The present study investigated the flow and heat transfer characteristics of aspirated thermocouples using a simple energy balance model and a 3D CFD model. The calculations quantify the systematic measurement error, providing an estimate of the me ...
