31. 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 ...

32. Cable Response to Live Fire (CAROLFIRE) Volume 3: Thermally-Induced Electrical Failure (THIEF) Model.
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7472
Published: 4/1/2008
Authors: Kevin B McGrattan, J Dreisbach
Abstract: This report describes a thermally-induced electrical failure (THIEF) model's ability to predict the behavior of power, instrument, and control cables during a fire. The model is intended to be incorporated as a subroutine for deterministic fire model ...

33. Recent Advances in Fire-Structure Analysis
Published: 2/1/2008
Authors: Dat Duthinh, Kevin B McGrattan, Abed M Khaskia
Abstract: One of the recommendations of the National Construction Safety Team for the Federal Building and Fire Safety Investigation of the World Trade Center Disaster (NIST NCSTAR 1, 2005) is to enhance the capability of available computational software to pr ...

34. Adiabatic Surface Temperature for Calculating Heat Transfer to Fire Exposed Structures.
Published: 9/1/2007
Authors: U Wickstrom, Dat Duthinh, Kevin B McGrattan

35. Multiple Parameter Mixture Fraction With Two-Step Combustion Chemistry for Large Eddy Simulation.
Published: 9/1/2007
Authors: J E Floyd, Kevin B McGrattan

36. Verification and Validation of Selected Fire Models for Nuclear Power Plant Applications. Volume 2. Experimental Uncertainty (NUREG 1824)
Series: OTHER
Report Number: 1824
Published: 5/1/2007
Authors: Anthony P Hamins, Kevin B McGrattan
Abstract: The purpose of this volume is to provide a means for quantitative comparison of model simulations and measurements. The methodology employed follows the guidelines outlined in ASTM E 1355, Standard Guide for Evaluating the Predictive Capability of De ...

37. Verification and Validation--How to Determine the Accuracy of Fire Models.
Published: 3/1/2007
Authors: Mark Henry Salley, Jason Dreisbach, Kendra Hill, Bijan Najafi, Francisco Joglar, Anthony P Hamins, Kevin B McGrattan, Richard D Peacock, Robert Kassawara
Abstract: Both domestically and worldwide, there is a movement to introduce risk-informed and performance-based analyses into fire protection engineering practice. One key tool needed to support risk-informed, performance-based (RI/PB) fire protection is fire ...

38. Evaluation of Fire Models for Nuclear Power Plant Applications: Benchmark Exercise #3
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7338
Published: 1/31/2007
Author: Kevin B McGrattan
Abstract: A series of full-scale fire experiments was conducted at NIST in 2003 to provide data for an international benchmarking exercise to validate fire models over a range of operating conditions expected within a variety of compartments in a nuclear power ...

39. Numerical Modeling of Radiative Heat Transfer in Water Sprays.
Published: 12/1/2006
Authors: Simo A Hostikka, Kevin B McGrattan

40. Numerical Simulation of the Howard Street Tunnel Fire.
Published: 9/1/2006
Authors: Kevin B McGrattan, Anthony P Hamins
