41. Temperature Uncertainties for Bare-Bead and Aspirated Thermocouple Measurements in Fire Environments
Published: 3/14/1999
Authors: William M Pitts, E Braun, Richard D Peacock, Henri E. Mitler, Erik L Johnsson, Paul A Reneke, L G. Blevins
Abstract: Gas-phase temperature is the most ubiquitous measurement recorded in fire environments and plays a central role in understanding of fire behavior. Generally, either bare-bead or sheathed thermcouples are employed. While it is recognized that such the ...

43. Real-Time Suppressant Concentration Measurement (NIST SP 890)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 890
Published: 11/1/1995
Authors: William M Pitts, George William Mulholland, B D Breuel, Erik L Johnsson, S Chung, Richard H. Harris Jr., D E Hess
Abstract: The development and testing of two approaches for recording real-time measurements (millisecond time resolution) of concentration for halon alternatives are summarized. Discussions of the background necessary to understand their operation is included ...

44. Scaling Compartment Fires - Reduced- and Full-Scale Enclosure Burns.
Published: 9/10/1995
Authors: Nelson P Bryner, Erik L Johnsson, William M Pitts
Abstract: An extensive series of over 140 natural gas fires in a 2/5ths-scale model of a standard room has been previously reported. This work extends the earlier reduced-scale enclosure (RSE) study to a full-scale enclosure (FSE) and focuses on comparing the ...

45. Combustion Product Formation in Under and Overventilated Full-Scale Enclosure Fires
Published: 4/23/1995
Authors: William M Pitts, Nelson P Bryner, Erik L Johnsson
Abstract: The findings of an extensive series of over 140 natural gas fires in a 2/5ths-scale model of a standard room have been previously reported. The current work extends the earlier reduced-scale enclosure (RSE) study to a full-scale enclosure (FSE) and f ...

46. Carbon Monoxide Production in Compartment Fires: Reduced-Scale Enclosure Test Facility (NISTIR 5568)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5568
Published: 12/1/1994
Authors: Nelson P Bryner, Erik L Johnsson, William M Pitts
Abstract: The formation of carbon monoxide during room or compartment fires has been investigated using natural gas fires burning within a reduced-scale enclosure (RSE), an 0.98 m x 0.98 m x 1.46 m (w x h x d) room with a single door opening centered in the fr ...

47. Carbon Monoxide Production in Compartment Fires: Full-Scale Enclosure Burns (NISTIR 5499)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5499
Published: 9/1/1994
Authors: Nelson P Bryner, Erik L Johnsson, William M Pitts
Abstract: Recent studies attribute a large percentage of fire injuries and deaths to the generation of carbon monoxide (CO) and indicate that in roughly two-thirds of the fire deaths the fire victims have fatal or incapacitating levels of carboxyhemoglobin in ...

48. Fire-Induced Mass Flow Into a Reduced-Scale Enclosure (NISTIR 5499)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5499
Published: 9/1/1994
Authors: Erik L Johnsson, Nelson P Bryner, William M Pitts
Abstract: Enclosure fires are of great interest because of the resulting loss of life and property, yet the fluid dynamic and chemical behaviors of fires within enclosures are still not well understood. In recent decades, it has become clear that burning rates ...

49. Carbon Monoxide Formation in Fires by High-Temperature Anaerobic Wood Pyrolysis
Published: 7/31/1994
Authors: William M Pitts, Erik L Johnsson, Nelson P Bryner
Abstract: Building fire fatalities often occur at locations remote from the room where the fire is actually burning. The majority of these fire deaths are the result of smoke inhalation, primarily due to exposure to carbon monoxide (CO). Although causing nearl ...

50. Production Mechanisms for Carbon Monoxide in Enclosure Fires
Published: 3/15/1993
Authors: William M Pitts, Nelson P Bryner, Erik L Johnsson
Abstract: Roughly two thirds of all deaths resulting from enclosure fires can be attributed to the presence of carbon monoxide (CO), which is known to be the dominant toxicant in fire deaths. The mechanisms responsible for the generation of high concentrations ...
