101. Fire Safety of Passenger Trains. Phase 1: Material Evaluation (Cone Calorimeter) (NISTIR 6132)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6132
Published: 3/1/1999
Authors: Richard D Peacock, E Braun
Abstract: This report presents the results of Cone Calorimeter testing of selected materials from current passenger train systems. The test data from this test method were compared to FRA guideline test results. The Cone Calorimeter data was also tabulated to ...

102. Evaluation of Passenger Train Car Materials in the Cone Calorimeter
Published: 2/23/1999
Authors: Richard D Peacock, Richard W. Bukowski, S. H. Markos
Abstract: Recent advances in fire test methods and hazard analysis techniques make it useful to re-examine passenger train fire safety requirements. The use of test methods based on heat release rate (HRR), incorporated with fire modeling and hazard analysis, ...

104. Quantifying Fire Model Evaluation Using Functional Analysis
Published: 1/1/1999
Authors: Richard D Peacock, Paul A Reneke, William D. Davis, Walter William Jones
Abstract: Comparisons of predictive fire models with each other or with experimental data have been largely qualitative. By treating these time series curves as infinite-dimensional vectors, a branch of mathematics called functional analysis defines geometric ...

105. Sensitivity Examination of the airEXODUS Aircraft Evacuation Simulation Model
Published: 11/16/1998
Authors: Richard W. Bukowski, Richard D Peacock, Walter William Jones
Abstract: The Building and Fire Research Laboratory at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has been a leader in the development, application and evaluation of models for the simulation of fires and the associated hazards and risk to peop ...

107. Temperature Uncertainties for Bare-Bead and Aspirated Thermocouple Measurements in Fire Environments (NISTIR 6242)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6242
Published: 10/1/1998
Authors: William M Pitts, E Braun, Richard D Peacock, Henri E. Mitler, Erik L Johnsson, Paul A Reneke, L G. Blevins
Abstract: Gas-phase temperature is the most ubiquitous measurement recorded in fire environments and plays a central role in understanding of fire behavior. Generally, either bare-bead or sheathed thermcouples are employed. While it is recognized that such the ...

108. Using Sensor Data to Predict the Environment in a Building
Published: 2/25/1998
Authors: Walter William Jones, Richard D Peacock, Glenn P Forney, Paul A Reneke
Abstract: As transducers become more commonplace in the built environment, it is desirable to utilize this information in a more complete way to assure safety. There are two fi to doing this, incorporating our knowledge of fires and other extreme events into ...

109. Issues in Evaluation of Complex Fire Models
Published: 1/1/1998
Authors: Richard D Peacock, Paul A Reneke, Glenn P Forney, M. M. Kostreva
Abstract: Several methods of evaluation of the predictive capability have been applied to fire models, but with limited utility. These range from explicit evaluation of the equations used in simple models such as ASET to pointwise evaluation of complex models ...

110. Methodology for Obtaining and Using Toxic Potency Data for Fire Hazard Analysis
Published: 1/1/1998
Authors: Vyto Babrauskas, Richard George Gann, Barbara C. Levin, M Paabo, Richard H. Harris Jr., Richard D Peacock, S Yusa
Abstract: A comprehensive methodology has been developed for obtaining and using smoke toxicity data for fire hazard analysis. This description of the methodology comprises (1) determination that the post-flashover fire is the proper focus of smoke inhalation ...
