63. User's Guide for Smokeview Version 4.0 - A Tool for Visualizing Fire Dynamics Simulation Data
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1017
Published: 8/1/2004
Authors: Glenn P Forney, Kevin B McGrattan
Abstract: Smokeview is a software tool designed to visualize numerical calculations generated by the NIST Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS), a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model of fire-driven fluid flow. These two tools are typically used together to respe ...

64. Simulating the Fires in the World Trade Center
Published: 7/7/2004
Authors: Kevin B McGrattan, C P. Bouldin
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is conducting a two year investigation of the World Trade Center disaster. Among numerous tasks, computer simulations of the fires are being conducted to provide structural engineers with a de ...

65. Fire Dynamics Simulator (Version 4) - User's Guide
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1019
Published: 7/1/2004
Author: Kevin B McGrattan
Abstract: Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS) is a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modelof fire-driven fluid flow. The software described in this document solves numerically a form of the Navier-Stokes equations appropriate for low-speed, thermally-driven flow wi ...

66. Modeling Fire Growth and Spread in Houses. (Abstract/Presentation/Visuals)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 998
Published: 12/1/2003
Author: Kevin B McGrattan
Abstract: In cooperation with the fire protection engineering community, a numerical fire model, Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS), is being developed at NIST to study fire behavior and to evaluate the performance of fire protection systems in buildings. Version 1 ...

67. Neighborhood-Scale Fire Spread
Published: 11/16/2003
Authors: Ronald G. Rehm, D. D. Evans, William E. Mell, Simo A Hostikka, Kevin B McGrattan, Glenn P Forney, Charles E. Bouldin, Elisa S. Baker
Abstract: This paper describes development of a physics-based mathematical and computational model to predict fire spread among structures and natural fuels (trees, shrubs and ground litter). This tool will be used to understand how fires spread in a communit ...

68. Large-Scale Modeling of Fire Suppression with Water Sprays
Published: 9/2/2003
Author: Kevin B McGrattan
Abstract: The mechanisms underlying fire suppression by water can bedivided into gas and solid phase phenomena. Numerical models ofthese phenomena are dependent on the level of detail given to thecombustion and the fuel pyrolysis processes.Presently, models of ...

69. Unwanted Accelerated Burning After Suppressant Delivery
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1004
Published: 9/2/2003
Authors: Anthony P Hamins, Kevin B McGrattan, Glenn P Forney
Abstract: In a number of real-scale fire tests, accelerated or enhanced unwanted burning has been observed immediately following the delivery of a fire suppressant. The conditions under which this phenomena occurs, its potential for harm, and its effect on the ...

70. Understanding Fire and Smoke Flow Through Modeling and Visualization
Published: 8/1/2003
Authors: Glenn P Forney, Daniel Madrzykowski, Kevin B McGrattan, L M Sheppard
Abstract: Structural fires cost the American economy more than $100 billion annually in property damage, maintaining fire departments and insurance. A price cannot be put on the human toll: on average each year, 4,000 civilians die and 23,000 are injured in fi ...
