111. 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 ...

112. 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 ...

113. 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 ...

114. 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 ...

115. Heat Release Rate: The Single Most Important Variable in Fire Hazard
Published: 10/20/1990
Authors: Vyto Babrauskas, Richard D Peacock
Abstract: Heat release rate measurements are sometimes seen by manufacturers and product users as just another piece of data to gather. It is the purpose of this paper to explain why heat release rate is in fact, the single most important variable in characte ...

116. Protecting Fire Fighters Exposed in Room Fires. Part 2. Performance of Turnout Coat Materials Under Actual Fire Conditons
Published: 8/1/1990
Authors: Richard D Peacock, John F. Krasny, J A Rockett, D Huang
Abstract: Seven experimental fires varying in fire load were conducted in a simulated townhouse. Specimens of various current fire fighters turnout coat materials were exposed in the room of fire origin. The time at which conditions would become untenable for ...

117. Prototype Methodology for Fire Hazard Analysis
Published: 2/1/1990
Authors: Richard D Peacock, Richard W. Bukowski
Abstract: The first version of a method for predicting the hazards to occupants involved in a building fire is described. The method and available computer software, called HAZARD I, can predict the time varying environment within a building resulting from a ...

118. Example Cases for the HAZARD I Fire Hazard Assessment Method. Volume 3. Final Report (NIST HB-146/III)
Series: Handbook (NIST HB)
Report Number: 146
Published: 6/1/1989
Authors: Richard W. Bukowski, Richard D Peacock, Walter William Jones, C. L. Forney
Abstract: This report describes the first version of a method for predicting the hazards to occupants involved in a building fire. To implement the method, a personal computer software package called HAZARD I is provided. The software consists of modules whic ...

119. Technical Reference Guide for FAST Version 18. Final Report (NIST TN 1216)
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1216
Published: 5/1/1989
Authors: Walter William Jones, Richard D Peacock
Abstract: FAST (fire and smoke transport) is a zone model capable of predicting the environment in a multi-compartment structure subjected to a fire. This reference guide provides a detailed description of the source terms used in the model, data input requir ...

120. Fire Hazard Comparison of Fire-Retarded and Non-Fire-Retarded Products (NBS SP 749)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 749
Published: 7/1/1988
Authors: Vyto Babrauskas, Richard H. Harris Jr., Richard George Gann, Barbara C. Levin, B T Lee, Richard D Peacock, M Paabo, W H. Twilley, M F Yoklavich, H M Clark
Abstract: A test program was conducted for the Fire Retardant Chemicals Association to quantify the effects of fire retardant chemicals on total fire hazard. Five different types of products, each made from a different type of plastic were used. The products ...
