81. Fire Service and Fire Science: A Winning Combination
Published: 3/1/1994
Authors: R E Sanders, Daniel Madrzykowski
Abstract: To test their ability to fight high-rise fires, the Louisville Fire Department had to simulate one. And to do that, they needed the help of the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

82. Effect of Recessed Sprinkler Installation on Sprinkler Activation Time and Prediction
Published: 1/1/1993
Author: Daniel Madrzykowski
Abstract: The objectives of this study were to analyze the effects of recessed sprinkler installation on sprinkler activation time and evaluate the ability of sprinkler activation models to predict activation time. Full scale compartment fire tests were used t ...

83. Visibility of Exit Signs in Clear and Smoky Conditions
Published: 12/1/1992
Authors: Belinda Lowenhaupt Collins, M S Dahir, Daniel Madrzykowski
Abstract: In the present study, the visibility of several types of internally lit exit signs was assessed under both clear and smoky conditions. In the evaluation both photometric and psychophysical measures were taken.

84. Sprinkler Fire Suppression Algorithm for the GSA Engineering Fire Assessment System (NISTIR 4833)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 4833
Published: 5/1/1992
Authors: Daniel Madrzykowski, R Vettori
Abstract: A study was conducted to develop a sprinkler fire suppression algorithm for use with sprinkler activation time models. Large scale experiments were performed to determine the heat release rate (HRR) of selected office fuel packages with and without s ...

85. Reduction in Fire Hazard in Corridors and Areas Adjoining Corridors Provided by Sprinklers (NISTIR 4631)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 4631
Published: 7/1/1991
Author: Daniel Madrzykowski
Abstract: A study was conducted for the General Services Administration to investigate and quantify sprinklered fire exposure on an exit corridor and spaces adjacent to that corridor. The study compares the conditions in the test facility due to a 1 MW crib fi ...

86. Analysis of Smoke Samples From Oil Well Fires in Kuwait. Report of Test (FR 3985)
Published: 6/20/1991
Authors: George William Mulholland, Bruce A Benner Jr, Robert A Fletcher, Eric B Steel, Stephen A Wise, Willie E May, Daniel Madrzykowski, David J. Evans
Abstract: This report describes results from a preliminary series of measurements concerning the smoke production from the Kuwait oil well fires. Detailed chemical analysis of the smoke is being carried out for determination of the fraction of ambient aerosol ...

87. Evaluation of Exit Signs in Clear and Smoke Conditions (NISTIR 4399)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 4399
Published: 8/1/1990
Authors: Belinda Lowenhaupt Collins, Daniel Madrzykowski
Abstract: The present paper provides a short review of the research literature on the visibility of exit signs, directional markings, and emergency lighting. It also presents a study which assessed the visibility of several types of exit signs including conven ...

88. Study of the Ignition Inhibiting Properties of Compressed Air Foam.
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 88-3880
Published: 10/3/1988
Author: Daniel Madrzykowski
Abstract: This report describes an initial step to quantify the effectiveness of water-based compressed air foam (CAF) generated with a synthetic hydrocarbon-based surfactant. Two series of tests were conducted with the synthetic hydrocarbon surfactant based ...

89. Characterizing the Thermal Response of Fusible-Link Sprinklers. Final Report.
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Published: 8/1/1981
Authors: D D Evans, Daniel Madrzykowski

90. Cigarette and Match Igition Experiments on Materials From Seton Hall Fire, January 19, 2000
Published: Date unknown
Author: Daniel Madrzykowski
Abstract: This letter describes a series of ignition experiments, which were designed to characterize the ignition propensity of materials involved in the investigation of the fire at Seton Hall university, January 19, 2000.This series was limited to two ignit ...
