41. 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 ...

42. 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 ...

43. 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 ...

45. 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 ...

46. 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 ...

47. Clean Agent Suppression of Energized Electrical Equipment Fires
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1622
Published: 1/1/2009
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 ...

48. Prediction of the Burning Rate of Non-Charring Polymers
Published: 1/1/2009
Authors: Stanislav Stoliarov, Sean Crowley, R Lyon, Gregory T Linteris
Abstract: This study demonstrates that a numerical pyrolysis model called ThermaKin, which was developed by SRA International, Inc. and the Federal Aviation Administration, can be used to predict and extrapolate the results of gasification and cone calorimet ...

49. Flame Size, Heat Release, and Smoke Points in Materials Flammability
Published: 8/1/2008
Authors: Gregory T Linteris, I P Rafferty
Abstract: The concept of using the flame size as a surrogate for heat release rate has been explored. A technique for simultaneously obtaining the heat release rate, flame size (height and area), and the smoke point of the flame solely from visual images has ...

Published: 7/1/2008
Author: Gregory T Linteris
Abstract: The ignition of stoichiometric and fuel-lean hydrogen-air mixtures near 1000 K was studied, for varying amounts of iron additives. Depending on the initial conditions, the addition of iron pentacarbonyl promotes or inhibits the ignition of hydrogen ...
