51. Limits to the Effectiveness of Metal-Containing Fire Suppressants. Final Technical Report (NISTIR 7177)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7177
Published: 3/1/2004
Author: Gregory T Linteris
Abstract: This report reviews the literature on metal inhibition of flames and identifies metal species with potential as fire suppressant additives. To provide a basis for discussion, the detailed mechanism of inhibition of iron is reviewed, and the reaso ...

52. Supression Characteristics of Cup-Burner Flames in Low Gravity
Published: 1/1/2004
Authors: F Takahashi, Gregory T Linteris, V Katta
Abstract: The structure and suppression of laminar methane air co-flow diffusion flames formed on a cup burner have been studied experimentally and numerically using physically acting fire-extinguishing agents (CO2, N2, He, and Ar) in normal earth (1g) and zer ...

53. Scale Model Flames for Determining the Heat Release Rate from Burning Polymers
Published: 9/17/2003
Authors: Gregory T Linteris, I P Rafferty
Abstract: The utility of flame size for the assessment of the heat release rate of burning polymers has been studied. Six polymers were tested in the NIST cone calorimeter to determine their heat release rate, and their flame height, area, and volume. A redu ...

54. Suppression of Cup-Burner Flames
Published: 9/17/2003
Authors: F Takahashi, Gregory T Linteris, V Katta
Abstract: The unsteady suppression process of a laminar methane-air co-flow diffusion flame formed on a cup burner has been studied experimentally and numerically in normal earth gravity. The computation uses a time-dependent direct numerical simulation with d ...

55. Experimental And Numerical Evaluation Of GaseousAgents For Suppressing Cup-Burner Flames In Low-Gravity
Published: 6/1/2003
Authors: F Takahashi, Gregory T Linteris, V Katta
Abstract: Longer duration missions to the moon, to Mars, and on the International Space Station (ISS)increase the likelihood of accidental fires. NASA s fire safety program for human-crewed spaceflight is based largely on removing ignition sources and controll ...

56. Simulation of Cup-Burner Flames in Microgravity
Published: 6/1/2003
Authors: V Katta, F Takahashi, Gregory T Linteris
Abstract: The extinction process of cup-burner flames under normal-gravity conditions were previously studied. As the low-speed diffusion flames behave differently in microgravity compared to those on earth, it is important to understand the structureof cup-bu ...

57. Extinction Characteristics of Cup-Burner Flame in Microgravity
Published: 1/1/2003
Authors: V Katta, F Takahashi, Gregory T Linteris
Abstract: Carbon dioxide extinguishes flames through dilution process. The extinction characteristics of CO2 were previously studied using a cup-burner flame under normal-gravity conditions. As the diffusion flames behave differently in microgravity compared t ...

58. Numerical Investigations of CO^d2^ as Fire Suppressing Agent
Published: 1/1/2003
Authors: V Katta, F Takahashi, Gregory T Linteris
Abstract: Understanding suppression mechanisms of different fire-suppressing agents including CF^d3^Br (Halon 1301) and inert gases is useful for their efficient use and for developing new agents. Because of the similarities between unsteady jet diffusion flam ...

59. Extinction of Cup-Burner Diffusion Flames by Catalytic and Inert Inhibitors
Published: 12/1/2002
Author: Gregory T Linteris
Abstract: The first tests of super-effective flame inhibitors blended with CO2 have been performed in methane-air co-flow diffusion flames. Although the organometallic agents used are typically one or two orders of magnitude more effective inhibitors than CF3 ...

60. Inhibition of Premixed and Non-Premixed Flames With Fine Droplets of Water and Solutions
Published: 7/21/2002
Authors: H K Chelliah, A K Lazzarini, P N Wanigarathne, Gregory T Linteris
Abstract: Inhibition/extinction of premixed and non-premixed methane-air flames with fine-droplets of water and solutions containing several chemical agents are investigated experimentally. While solutions allow delivery of much higher concentrations of ch ...
