61. Improved Radiation and Combustion Routines for a Large Eddy Simulation Fire Model
Published: 6/16/2005
Authors: Kevin B McGrattan, J E. Floyd, Glenn P Forney, Howard Richard Baum, Simo A Hostikka
Abstract: Improvements have been made to the combustion and radiation routines of a large eddy simulation fire model maintained by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. The combustion is based on a single transport equation for the mixture fract ...

62. Modeling Solid Sample Burning With FDS
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7178
Published: 6/1/2005
Authors: Gregory T Linteris, L W. Gewuerz, Kevin B McGrattan, Glenn P Forney
Abstract: Black PMMA was burned in the cone calorimeter in two orientations (horizontal and vertical), at imposed radiant heat fluxes of (0, 5, 10, 25, 50, and 75) kW/m2, and the visual appearance, flame size, heat release rate, and mass loss rate were recorde ...

Author: Kevin B McGrattan

67. 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 ...

68. 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 ...

69. 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 ...

70. 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 ...
