11. Fire Model Validation ‹ Eight Lessons Learned
Published: 3/6/2014
Authors: Kevin B McGrattan, Richard D Peacock, Kristopher J Overholt
Abstract: This paper provides a summary of a decade-long effort to verify and validate a variety of different fire models used in the commercial nuclear industry. The lessons learned apply to any industry in which fire models are used in a regulatory context ...

12. Stair Evacuation of People with Mobility Impairments
Published: 3/3/2014
Authors: Erica D Kuligowski, Richard D Peacock, Bryan Hoskins, Emily Wiess
Abstract: The time that it takes a population to reach safety when descending a stairwell during building evacuations is typically described by measureable engineering variables. These engineering variables include stairwell geometry, speed, density, and p ...

13. An analysis of evacuation travel paths on stair landings by means of conditional probabilities
Published: 2/20/2014
Authors: Enrico Ronchi, Paul A Reneke, Erica D Kuligowski, Richard D Peacock
Abstract: This paper provides the analysis of a data-set about people movement on stair landings collected during an evacuation drill performed in a six-storey office building in the United States. The evacuation drill was filmed and occupant‰s behaviours on ...

14. A probabilistic approach for the analysis of stair evacuation movement data
Published: 1/1/2014
Authors: Enrico Ronchi, Erica D Kuligowski, Richard D Peacock, Paul A Reneke
Abstract: This paper presents an innovative method to study stair evacuation data based on a probabilistic analysis of occupant travel paths. This type of approach relies on a detailed video analysis of people movement and pattern reconstruction. Conditional ...

15. The Process of Verification and Validation of Building Fire Evacuation Models
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1822
Published: 11/21/2013
Authors: Enrico Ronchi, Erica D Kuligowski, Paul A Reneke, Richard D Peacock, Daniel Nilsson
Abstract: To date, there is no International standard on the methods and tests to assess the verification and validation (V&V) of building fire evacuation models, i.e., model testers adopt inconsistent procedures or tests designed for other model uses. For i ...

16. Stair evacuation of older adults and people with mobility impairments
Published: 10/31/2013
Authors: Erica D Kuligowski, Richard D Peacock, Emily Wiess, Bryan Hoskins
Abstract: Engineers analyze occupant movement data for the safety and protection of a population during emergency building evacuations. Quantifiable variables, such as: stairwell geometry, pre-evacuation delay, occupant speed, and population density form e ...

17. A method for the analysis of behavioural uncertainty in evacuation modelling
Published: 7/9/2013
Authors: Enrico Ronchi, Paul A Reneke, Richard D Peacock
Abstract: Evacuation models generally include the use of distributions or probabilistic variables to simulate the variability of possible human behaviours. A single model setup of the same evacuation scenario may therefore produce a distribution of different ...

18. CFAST ‹ Consolidated Model of Fire Growth and Smoke Transport (Version 6): Software Development and Model Evaluation Guide
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1086r1
Published: 3/28/2013
Authors: Richard D Peacock, Walter William Jones, Paul A Reneke
Abstract: Abstract This supplement to the CFAST Technical Reference Guide provides details of the software development process for CFAST and accompanying validation for the model. It is based in part on the Standard Guide for Evaluating the Predictive Capa ...

19. CFAST ‹ Consolidated Model of Fire Growth and Smoke Transport (Version 6): User‰s Guide
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1041r1
Published: 3/28/2013
Authors: Richard D Peacock, Paul A Reneke, Glenn P Forney
Abstract: CFAST is a two-zone fire model capable of predicting the environment in a multi-compartment structure subjected to a fire. It calculates the time evolving distribution of smoke and gaseous combustion products as well as the temperature throughout a ...

20. Combined Stairwell and Elevator Use During Building Evacuation
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1793
Published: 3/20/2013
Authors: Paul A Reneke, Bryan L. Hoskins, Richard D Peacock
