111. Sprinklers, Vent, and Draft Curtain Interaction: Modeling and Experiment
Published: 2/25/1998
Authors: Kevin B McGrattan, Anthony P Hamins, D. D. Evans
Abstract: The second and most recent application of the NIST Industrial Fire Simulation (IFS) System is to predict the performance of sprinklers, draft curtains and roof vents in storage facilities and retail spaces. The IFS System is a series of computational ...

112. Smoke Plume Trajectory From In Situ Burning of Crude Oil in Alaska: Field Experiments and Modeling of Complex Terrain (NISTIR 5958)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5958
Published: 1/1/1997
Authors: Kevin B McGrattan, Howard Richard Baum, William D. Walton, J. J. Trelles
Abstract: A combination of numerical modeling and large scale experimentation has yielded a tremendous amount of information about the structure, trajectory and composition of smoke plumes from large crude oil fires. The model, ALOFT (A Large Outdoor Fire plu ...

113. Distributed Detection for Tomographic Measurements of Component Concentrations in Fire Generated Plumes (NISTIR 5904)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5904
Published: 10/1/1996
Authors: R T Baum, Kevin B McGrattan, Marc R. Nyden
Abstract: One of the major goals of fire research is to develop the capability to make realistic assessments of fire impact and risk by utilizing models. Currently the large scale fire/plume models may not be validated and hence calculations which may have a ...

114. Smoke Plume Trajectory From In Situ Burning of Crude Oil in Alaska: Field Experiments (NISTIR 5764)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5764
Published: 11/1/1995
Authors: Kevin B McGrattan, William D. Walton, Anthony D Putorti Jr, W H. Twilley, Jay A McElroy, D D Evans
Abstract: As part of their effort to assess the impact of smoke plumes from in situ burning of crude oil on nearby populations, the Alaska Regional Response Team and the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation established a Cooperative Research and Dev ...

115. Suppression of Engine Nacelle Fires (NIST SP 890)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 890
Published: 11/1/1995
Authors: Anthony P Hamins, Thomas George Cleary, P. Borthwick, N Gorchkov, Kevin B McGrattan, Glenn P Forney, William L. Grosshandler, Cary Presser, L Melton
Abstract: A series of experimental measurements were conducted and simple models were developed in an effort to provide an improved understanding of the influence of various parameters on the processes controlling flame stability in engine nacelle applications ...

116. Computing the Effect of Sprinkler Sprays on Fire Induced Gas Flow
Published: 9/10/1995
Authors: Glenn P Forney, Kevin B McGrattan
Abstract: Over the last twenty years there has been much debate concerning the interaction of sprinklers and draft curtains in large storage facilities. At issue is whether or not the two fire protection systems are mutually beneficial. It has been suggested ...

117. Smoke Plume Trajectory From In Situ Burning of Crude Oil in Alaska (NISTIR 5273)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5273
Published: 10/1/1993
Authors: Kevin B McGrattan, Anthony D Putorti Jr, W H. Twilley, D D Evans
Abstract: Experimentation, analysis, and modeling have been performed to predict the downwind dispersion of smoke resulting from in situ burning of oil spills. North Slope and Cook Inlet crude oils are burned on water in a 1.2 meter diameter pan. Smoke yields ...

118. Simulating Enclosure Fire Dynamics and Suppression
Published: Date unknown
Authors: Howard Richard Baum, Kevin B McGrattan
Abstract: At least three different physics based approaches to fire dynamicssimulations have evolved over the years; lumped parameter or ``zone models'',computational fluid dynamics models based on classical turbulence modelingtechniques, and large eddy simula ...
