51. Carbon Monoxide Formation in Fires by High-Temperature Anaerobic Wood Pyrolysis
William M Pitts, Erik L Johnsson, Nelson P Bryner
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 ...
52. Production Mechanisms for Carbon Monoxide in Enclosure Fires
William M Pitts, Nelson P Bryner, Erik L Johnsson
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 ...
53. Greatly Enhanced Soot Scattering in Flickering CH4/Air Diffusion Flames
K C Smyth, J E Harrington, Erik L Johnsson, William M Pitts
Planar images of laser-induced fluorescence from OH radicals and elastic scattering from soot particles are presented in time-varying laminar CH4/air diffusion flames burning in a co-flowing, axisymmetric configuration at atmospheric pressure. Acoust ...
