111. New Concepts for Fire Protection of Passenger Rail Transportation Vehicles
Published: 9/23/1993
Authors: Richard D Peacock, Richard W. Bukowski, Walter William Jones, Paul A Reneke
Abstract: Recent advances in guided ground transportation, fire test methods, and hazard analysis necessitate re-examination of requirements for fire safety. Several studies have indicated nearly random ability of current tests to predict actual fire behavior ...

112. CFAST, the Consolidated Model for Fire Growth and Smoke Transport
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1299
Published: 1/7/1993
Authors: Richard D Peacock, Glenn P Forney, Paul A Reneke, Walter William Jones
Abstract: CFAST is a zone model capable of predicting the environment in a multi-compartment structure subjected to a fire. It calculates the time evolving distribution of smoke and fire gases and the temperature throughout a building during a user-specified f ...

113. Verification of a Model of Fire and Smoke Transport
Published: 1/1/1993
Authors: Richard D Peacock, Walter William Jones, Richard W. Bukowski
Abstract: A set of comparisons between a comprehensive room fire model and a range of real-scale fire experiments is presented. For these comparisons, a zone-based model, CFAST ('consolidated fire and smoke transport' model) is used. The model predicts the ev ...

114. A User's Guide for CFAST Version 1.6
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 4985
Published: 12/1/1992
Authors: Paul A Reneke, Walter William Jones, Richard D Peacock, Rebecca W. Portier
Abstract: CFAST is a zone model capable of predicting the environment in a multi-compartmentstructure subjected to a fire. This guide provides a detailed description of the pre- and post-processing routines used by the model, the data input requirements, and ...

115. Toxic Potency Measurement for Fire Hazard Analysis. Technical Note.
Published: 12/1/1992
Authors: V Babrauskas, B C Levin, Richard George Gann, 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: determination that the post-flashover fire is the proper focus of smoke inhalation dea ...

117. Measurement of Toxic Potency for Fire Hazard Analysis
Series: OTHER
Published: 5/18/1992
Authors: Vyto Babrauskas, Barbara C. Levin, Richard George Gann, M Paabo, Richard H. Harris Jr., Richard D Peacock, S Yusa
Abstract: This study is the principle product of a research program to provide a technically sound methodology for obtaining and using smoke toxicity data for hazard analysis. It establishes: (a) an improved bench-scale toxic potency measurement, one which re ...

118. Fire Performance of Wire and Cable: Reaction-to-Fire Tests--A Critical Review of the Existing Methods and of New Concepts (NIST TN 1219)
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1291
Published: 12/1/1991
Authors: Vyto Babrauskas, Richard D Peacock, E Braun, Richard W. Bukowski, Walter William Jones
Abstract: U. S. and Canadian reaction-to-fire tests for wire and cable are examined. The technical basis for their development is analyzed. The data requirements for engineering computations of fire hazard are examined. It is found that the current methods ar ...

119. Data for Room Fire Model Comparisons
Published: 8/1/1991
Authors: Richard D Peacock, S Davis, Vyto Babrauskas
Abstract: With the development of models to predict fire growth and spread in buildings, there has been a concomitant evolution in the measurement and analysis of experimental data in real-scale fires. This report presents the types of analyses that can be us ...

120. Analysis of Large-Scale Fire Test Data
Published: 1/1/1991
Authors: Richard D Peacock, Vyto Babrauskas
Abstract: Large-scale room fire testing has evolved from simple fire performance measurements such as intensity and duration of 'room fires' to sophisticated measurements to understand the properties which cause the fire. This paper provides a overview of typ ...
