22. Extending the Mixture Fraction Concept to Address Under-Ventilated Fires
Published: 4/6/2009
Authors: Kevin B McGrattan, Jason E Floyd
Abstract: A common technique in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling of fire is to assume single step, infinitely fast combustion, in which case the transport equations of all gas species can be combined into one for a single conserved scalar called the ...

27. A Simple Model of Thermally-Induced Electrical Cable Failure
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7472
Published: 4/2/2008
Authors: Kevin B McGrattan, Kristopher Overholt
Abstract: A simple thermal model to predict the failure of electrical power, instrument, and control cables is described. The model is intended as a subroutine for deterministic fire models, and it is of comparable accuracy and simplicity to the activation al ...
