21. 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 ...

23. Performance Metrics for Fire Fighting Thermal Imaging Cameras: Small- and Full-Scale Experiments (NIST TN 1499)
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1499
Published: 7/1/2008
Authors: Francine K. Amon, Nelson P Bryner, Andrew J. Lock, Anthony P Hamins
Abstract: Thermal imaging cameras (TIC) are becoming an important tool for many firefighters and other first responders. However, due to the lack of performance standards for TIC, a wide variety of designs and capabilities are provided to end users with little ...
