1. Computing the Effect of Sprinkler Sprays on Fire Induced Gas Flow
Published: 9/10/1995
Authors: Glenn P Forney, Kevin B McGrattan
Abstract: Over the last twenty years there has been much debate concerning the interaction of sprinklers and draft curtains in large storage facilities. At issue is whether or not the two fire protection systems are mutually beneficial. It has been suggested ...

2. Distributed Detection for Tomographic Measurements of Component Concentrations in Fire Generated Plumes (NISTIR 5904)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5904
Published: 10/1/1996
Authors: R T Baum, Kevin B McGrattan, Marc R. Nyden
Abstract: One of the major goals of fire research is to develop the capability to make realistic assessments of fire impact and risk by utilizing models. Currently the large scale fire/plume models may not be validated and hence calculations which may have a ...

3. Examination of the Applicability of Computed Tomography for the Measurement of Component Concentrations in Fire-Generated Plumes
Published: 5/1/1998
Authors: R T Baum, Kevin B McGrattan, Marc R. Nyden
Abstract: The purpose of this investigation is to examine the feasibility of using computed tomography to evaluate the predictive capabilities of fire models. In this pursuit, we have analyzed data from both laboratory- and computer-generated plumes in order ...

4. Fire Dynamics Simulator (Version 3): Technical Reference Guide (NISTIR 6783)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6783
Published: 11/1/2001
Authors: Kevin B McGrattan, Howard Richard Baum, Ronald G. Rehm, Anthony P Hamins, Glenn P Forney, J E. Floyd, Simo A Hostikka
Abstract: Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS) is a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model of fire-driven fluid flow. The equations described in this document are a form of the Navier-Stokes equations appropriate for low-speed, thermally-driven flow with an emphas ...

8. 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 ...

9. 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 ...

10. 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 ...
