81. Future of Fire Simulation
Published: 12/1/2002
Authors: Kevin B McGrattan, Howard Richard Baum, Ronald G. Rehm, Glenn P Forney, Kuldeep R Prasad
Abstract: Scientists and engineers are often asked to make predictions of the state of technology in the future and are usually laughably wrong. The best prognosticators get the trends right, but cannot possibly fill in the details. Think of Jules Verne predi ...

82. Fire Dynamics Simulator (Version 3): Users Guide (NISTIR 6748)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6748
Published: 11/1/2002
Authors: Kevin B McGrattan, Glenn P Forney, J E. Floyd, Simo A Hostikka, Kuldeep R Prasad
Abstract: Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS) is a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model of 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 ...

84. Enclosure Effects on Flame Spread Over Solid Fuels in Microgravity
Published: 9/1/2002
Authors: Y NA Nakamura, Takashi Kashiwagi, Kevin B McGrattan
Abstract: Enclosure effects on the transition from localized ignition to subsequent flame spread over a thermally-thin solid fuel in microgravity are investigated numerically solving the low Mach number time-dependent Navier-Stokes equations. The numerical mod ...

85. Large Eddy Simulation of Buoyant Turbulent Pool Fires
Published: 7/25/2002
Authors: J Gore, Kevin B McGrattan, Ronald G. Rehm, Howard Richard Baum
Abstract: Three dimensional large eddy simulations (LES) of two buoyant flows were performed n conjunction with a Smagorinsky turbulence model. The flows included a non-reacting helium plume previously simulated with two-dimensional simulations and a methane/ ...

86. Community-Scale Fire Spread
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6891
Published: 7/1/2002
Authors: Ronald G. Rehm, Anthony P Hamins, Howard Richard Baum, Kevin B McGrattan, D D Evans
Abstract: This paper addresses community-scale fires, which have also been called urban/wildland interface or intermix fires. These fires arise when wildlandfires invade the built environment and attack structures as well as wildland fuels. The prediction of t ...

87. Initial Model for Fires in the World Trade Center Towers (NISTIR 6879)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6879
Published: 5/1/2002
Authors: Ronald G. Rehm, William M Pitts, Howard Richard Baum, D D Evans, Kuldeep R Prasad, Kevin B McGrattan, Glenn P Forney
Abstract: Based on preliminary assumptions and analysis, mathematical models have been used to estimate the behavior of the fires in the twin towers of the World Trade Center (WTC) on September 11, 2001. The hijacked-plane collision with each tower produced s ...

Report Number: 6879
Published: 5/1/2002
Authors: Ronald G. Rehm, William M Pitts, D D Evans, Kuldeep R Prasad, Kevin B McGrattan, Glenn P Forney
Abstract: Mathematical models have been used to provide an initial estimate the behavior of the fires in the twin towers of the World Trade Center (WTC) on September 11, 2001. Available photographs and videos have provided an initial estimate of the exterior d ...
