111. An Efficient Large Eddy Simulation Algorithm for Computational Wind Engineering: Application to Surface Pressure Computations on a Single Building.
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6371
Published: 8/1/1999
Authors: Ronald G. Rehm, Kevin B McGrattan, Howard Richard Baum, Emil Simiu
Abstract: An efficient large eddy simulation algorithm is used to compute mean surface pressure distributions on an isolated building of various rectangular shapes. Two incoming mean wind profiles are considered in these computations, one uniform with height a ...

114. 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 ...

115. 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 ...
