111. Suppression of Engine Nacelle Fires (NIST SP 890)
Special Publication (NIST SP)
Anthony P Hamins, Thomas George Cleary, P. Borthwick, N Gorchkov, Kevin B McGrattan, Glenn P Forney, William L. Grosshandler, Cary Presser, L Melton
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 ...
112. Computing the Effect of Sprinkler Sprays on Fire Induced Gas Flow
Glenn P Forney, Kevin B McGrattan
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 ...
113. Smoke Plume Trajectory From In Situ Burning of Crude Oil in Alaska (NISTIR 5273)
NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Kevin B McGrattan, Anthony D Putorti Jr, W H. Twilley, D D Evans
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 ...
114. Simulating Enclosure Fire Dynamics and Suppression
Howard Richard Baum, Kevin B McGrattan
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 ...
