71. 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 ...

72. 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 ...

73. 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 ...

74. Understanding Fire and Smoke Flow Through Modeling and Visualization
Published: 8/1/2003
Authors: Glenn P Forney, Daniel M. 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 ...

75. Calculating the Impact of Large Fires on the Environment.
Published: 7/9/2003
Author: Kevin B McGrattan

76. Numerical Modeling of Pool Fires Using LES and Finite Volume Method for Radiation
Published: 6/16/2003
Authors: Simo A Hostikka, Kevin B McGrattan, Anthony P Hamins
Abstract: The thermal environment in small and moderate-scale pool flames is studied by Large Eddy Simulation and the Finite Volume Method for radiative transport. The spectral dependence of the local absorption coefficient is represented using a simple wide b ...

77. Reduced-Scale Experiments on the Water Suppression of a Rack-Storage Commodity Fire for Calibration of a CFD Fire Model
Published: 6/16/2003
Authors: Anthony P Hamins, Kevin B McGrattan
Abstract: The objective of this work was to provide measurements from reduced-scale experiments for use in the NIST Fire Dynamics Simulator, a computational fluid dynamics model that calculates fire growth, spread, sprinkler activation, and water suppression o ...

78. User's Guide for Smokeview Version 3.1 - A Tool for Visualizing Fire Dynamics Simulation Data
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6980
Published: 4/1/2003
Authors: Glenn P Forney, Kevin B McGrattan
Abstract: Smokeview is a software tool designed to visualize numerical predictions 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 respec ...

79. ALOFT-PC: A Smoke Plume Trajectory Model for Personal Computers
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 995
Published: 3/1/2003
Authors: William D. Walton, Kevin B McGrattan, J V Mullin
Abstract: As the understanding of the capabilities and limitations of in situ burning of oil spills increases, in situ burning continues to gain acceptance as an oil spill mitigation tool. One widely imposed criteria for the use of in situ burning is limiting ...

80. In Situ Burning of Oil Spills: Mesoscale Experiments and Analysis (NIST SP 995)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 995
Published: 3/1/2003
Authors: William D. Walton, D. D. Evans, Kevin B McGrattan, Howard Richard Baum, W H. Twilley, Daniel M. Madrzykowski, Anthony D Putorti Jr., Ronald G. Rehm, H Koseki, E J Tennyson
Abstract: A series of six mesoscale and one large laboratory fire experiments were performed to measure the burning characteristics of Louisiana crude oil on water in a pan. These included one - 6 m square and five - 15 m square mesoscale burns and one - 1.2 m ...
