101. Transient Application, Recirculating Pool Fire, Agent Effectiveness Screen, Final Report, NGP Project 3A/2/890
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6733
Published: 4/1/2001
Authors: William L Grosshandler, Anthony P Hamins, Kevin B McGrattan, Cary Presser
Abstract: A laboratory-scale facility has been developed to screen the suppression effectiveness of fire fighting agents that are delivered in a transient fashion such as solid propellant gas generators. The transient application, recirculating pool fire (TARP ...

103. Thermal Radiation From Large Pool Fires (NISTIR 6546)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6546
Published: 11/1/2000
Authors: Kevin B McGrattan, Howard Richard Baum, Anthony P Hamins
Abstract: In order to protect people and combustible structures from the thermal radiation emitted by a large fire, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has established thermal radiation flux levels of 31.5 kW/m2 (10,000 Btu/h/ft2) for buildin ...

104. User's Guide for Smokeview Version 1.0: A Tool for Visualizing Fire Dynamics Simulation Data (NISTIR 6513)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6513
Published: 5/1/2000
Authors: Glenn P Forney, Kevin B McGrattan
Abstract: Smokeview is a software tool designed to visualize numerical predictions generated by the NIST Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS). FDS is a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model of fire-driven fluid flow. These two tools are used in concert to respect ...

105. 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 ...

106. 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 G. 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 ...

107. 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 ...

108. 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 ...
