101. Fire Dynamics Simulator: User's Manual (NISTIR 6469)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6469
Published: 1/1/2000
Authors: Kevin B McGrattan, Glenn P Forney
Abstract: Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS) is a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model of fire-driven fluid flow. The software described in this document solves numerically a form of the Navier-Stokes equations appropriate for low-speed, thermally-driven flow ...

102. Fire Dynamics Simulator: Technical Reference Guide (NISTIR 6467)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6467
Published: 1/1/2000
Authors: Kevin B McGrattan, Howard Richard Baum, Ronald George Rehm, Anthony P Hamins, Glenn P Forney
Abstract: The idea that the dynamics of a fire might be studied numerically dates back to the beginning of the computer age. Indeed, the fundamental conservation equations governing fluid dynamics, heat transfer, and combustion were first written down over a c ...

103. Suppression of a Non-Premixed Flame Behind a Step
Published: 1/1/2000
Authors: William L. Grosshandler, R Charagundla, Anthony P Hamins, Kevin B McGrattan, Cary Presser
Abstract: Because of its many positive attributes, halon 1301 or trifluorobromomethane (CF^d3^Br), has been used as a fire extinguishing agent in many applications, including aircraft, ships, and specialized structures. Due to its high ozone depletion potenti ...

104. Reduced-Scale Experiments to Characterize the Suppression of Rack-Storage Commodity Fires (NISTIR 6439)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6439
Published: 11/1/1999
Authors: Anthony P Hamins, Kevin B McGrattan
Abstract: A series of reduced-scale experiments were conducted to investigate the burning and water suppression of rack-storage commodity fires. The objective of the research reported here is to support the NIST Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS), a computational f ...

106. Numerical Simulation of Sprinkler Performance
Published: 2/24/1999
Authors: Kevin B McGrattan, Glenn P Forney
Abstract: Rapidly, changing building designs, uses, materials, contents, fire protection and the general intermix of industrial/commercial and residential occupancies has created a need to understand the potential hazards and losses from fires and performance ...

107. Transient Agent, Recirculating Pool Fire (TARPF) Suppression Screen (NISTIR 6242)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6242
Published: 10/1/1998
Authors: William L. Grosshandler, Anthony P Hamins, Kevin B McGrattan, Cary Presser
Abstract: The amount of a gaseous agent required to extinguish fires in full-scale engine nacelle tests varies greatly with the geometry of the fixture and the manner in which the flame is stabilized. It has been observed that if the test is designed to allow ...

108. Using Bench Scale Fire Measurements in Large Scale Simulations (NISTIR 6242)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6242
Published: 10/1/1998
Authors: Kevin B McGrattan, Anthony P Hamins, L G. Blevins
Abstract: A program is underwat at NIST to develop a numerical field model, referred to as the Industrial Fire Simulator (IFS), to simulate large scale fire phenomena. Because the model is intended to simulate fire flows within buildings whose volumes are on t ...

109. Sprinkler, Smoke and Heat Vent, Draft Curtain Interaction: Large Scale Experiments and Model Development. International Fire Sprinkler-Smoke and Heat Vent-Draft Curtain Fire Test Project (NISTIR 6196-1)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6196-1
Published: 9/1/1998
Authors: Kevin B McGrattan, Anthony P Hamins, D W. Stroup
Abstract: The International Sprinkler, Smoke and Heat Vent, Draft Curtain Fire Test Project organized by the National Fire Protection Research Coundation (NFPRF) has brought together a group of industrial sponsors to study the interaction of sprinklers with ro ...

110. Examination of the Applicability of Computed Tomography for the Measurement of Component Concentrations in Fire-Generated Plumes
Published: 5/1/1998
Authors: R T Baum, Kevin B McGrattan, Marc R. Nyden
Abstract: The purpose of this investigation is to examine the feasibility of using computed tomography to evaluate the predictive capabilities of fire models. In this pursuit, we have analyzed data from both laboratory- and computer-generated plumes in order ...
