6. 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 ...

7. 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 ...

8. 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 ...

9. 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 ...
