31. Suppressant-enhanced overpressure in the FAA Aerosol Can Simulator: Thermodynamic Considerations
Published: 10/5/2011
Authors: Gregory T Linteris, Fumiaki Takahashi, Viswanath R Katta, Harsha K Chelliah, Oliver Meier

32. Extinguishment of Methane Diffusion Flames by Inert Gases in Coflow Air and Oxygen-Enriched Microgravity Environments
Published: 6/1/2011
Authors: Gregory T Linteris, Fumiaki Takahashi, Vishwanath R Katta
Abstract: Extinguishment of laminar coflow diffusion flames in microgravity (μg) have been studied experimentally and computationally. The μg experiments were conducted using a methane cup-burner flame aboard the NASA Reduced-Gravity Aircraft. Transi ...

33. Large Scale Fire Dynamics in Spacecraft in Reduced Gravity
Published: 6/1/2011
Author: Gregory T Linteris
Abstract: Numerical fire codes are being widely used for understanding normal gravity fires. The goal of the present project was to modify one such code, the National Institute of Standards and Technology Fire Dynamics Simulator, so that it can be used to a ...

34. Understanding Combustion Promotion by Halogenated Fire Suppressants
Published: 3/17/2011
Authors: Gregory T Linteris, Fumiaki Takahashi, Viswanath R Katta, Harsha K Chelliah
Abstract: None

35. Unwanted Combustion Enhancement by Potential Halon Replacements: Thermodynamic Considerations
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1693
Published: 3/1/2011
Author: Gregory T Linteris
Abstract: It is desirable to replace Halon 1301, CF3Br, as the fire suppressant used in cargo bay fire suppression. Unfortunately, some candidate agents for replacing Halon 1301, in particular C2HF5, C3H2F3Br, C6F12O, were found to create greater pressure ris ...

36. Absorption of Thermal Radiation by Burning Polymers
Published: 2/2/2011
Authors: Gregory T Linteris, Mauro Zammarano, Boris Wilthan, Leonard M Hanssen
Abstract: In large-scale fires, the input of energy to burning materials occurs predominantly by radiative transfer. The in-depth absorption of radiant energy by a polymer influences its ignition time and burning rate. The present investigation examines two m ...

37. Clean agent suppression of energized electrical equipment fires
Published: 1/3/2011
Author: Gregory T Linteris
Abstract: The NFPA 2001 standard on the use of clean agents for the suppression of fires arose from the phase-out of Halon 1301. Standard methods exists for specifying the amount of clean agent required for Class A and Class B fires, but the recommendation fo ...

Published: 7/31/2010
Authors: Florian Kempel, Bernhard Schartel, Anja Hofmann, Gregory T Linteris, Richard E. Lyon, Richard N Walters, Stanislav Stoliarov
Abstract: Two different numerical simulation tools, Fire Dynamic Simulator FDS and ThermaKin, are investigated with respect to their capability to predict the mass loss rate of polymer materials exposed to different fires. For validation, gasification apparatu ...

39. Heat release and structural collapse of flexible polyurethane foam
Published: 1/1/2010
Authors: Roland H. Kraemer, Mauro Zammarano, Gregory T Linteris, Ulf Wil Gedde, Jeffrey W Gilman
Abstract: Flexible polyurethane foam used in upholstered furniture remains one of the major fire hazards to date. The heat release rate of burning items made of foam depends strongly on the foam‰s physical behavior, notably its collapse to a burning liquid tha ...

40. Extinguishment of Methane Diffusion Flames by Carbon Dioxide in Coflow Air and Oxygen-Enriched Microgravity Environments
Published: 2/2/2009
Authors: F Takahashi, Gregory T Linteris
Abstract: Microgravity experiments and computations have been conducted to elucidate stabilization and extinguishment mechanisms of methane diffusion flames, in the cup-burner configuration, with CO^d2^ added gradually to a coflowing air or oxygen-enriched str ...
