1. Preliminary Performance Assessment of Commercially-Available Hydrogen Sensors
Published: 11/12/2007
Authors: Nathan D Marsh, Thomas George Cleary
Abstract: As part of an effort to develop standard test methods for the performance of commercial hydrogen sensors, we employed the Fire Emulator / Detector Evaluator, an instrumented flow system designed to study the response of fire detectors (smoke, heat, ...

5. Evaluation of Firepots and Gel Fuels
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1791
Published: 4/5/2013
Author: Nathan D Marsh
Abstract: The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has identified a fire and burn hazard associated with a class of products often referred to as ,firepotsŠ , resulting in 2 deaths and 114 injuries as of August 31, 2012. The essential feature of this ...
