31. After the Alarm Sounds: How We Got Here, Where We Are, and Where We Should Go
Published: 4/1/2011
Authors: Jason D Averill, Erica D Kuligowski, Richard D Peacock
Abstract: This article reviews the history of egress design and code requirements in the United States, describes the current state-of-the-art in egress design and modeling, and offers a strawman research agenda for future egress research.

32. A Review of Building Evacuation Models, 2nd Edition
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1680
Published: 11/1/2010
Authors: Erica D Kuligowski, Richard D Peacock, Bryan L. Hoskins
Abstract: Evacuation calculations are increasingly becoming a part of performance-based analyses to assess the level of life safety provided in buildings. In some cases, engineers are using back-of-the-envelope (hand) calculations to assess life safety, and in ...

33. Fire Effluent Component Yields from Room-scale Fire Tests
Published: 10/1/2010
Authors: Richard George Gann, Jason D Averill, Erik L Johnsson, Marc R. Nyden, Richard D Peacock
Abstract: Estimation of the time available for escape (ASET) in the event of a fire is a principal component in fire hazard or risk assessment. Valid data on the yields of toxic smoke components from bench-scale apparatus is essential to accurate ASET calcula ...

34. Overall and Local Movement Speeds During Fire Drill Evacuations in Buildings up to 31 Stories
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1675
Published: 9/17/2010
Authors: Richard D Peacock, Bryan L. Hoskins, Erica D Kuligowski
Abstract: The time that it takes an occupant population to reach safety when descending a stairwell during building evacuations is typically described by measureable engineering variables such as stairwell geometry, speed, density, and pre-evacuation delay. ...

35. Building Occupant Egress Data
Series: OTHER
Report Number: 4024
Published: 8/27/2010
Authors: Richard D Peacock, Erica D Kuligowski
Abstract: Data on people movement on stairs were collected from 9 office and residential building evacuations in the United States. The buildings involved in this study range from 6 stories to 62 stories in height. The data were collected by positioning vide ...

36. Report on Residential Fireground Field Experiments
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1661
Published: 4/27/2010
Authors: Jason D Averill, Lori Moore-Merrell, Adam M. Barowy, Robert Santos, Richard D Peacock, Kathy Notarianni, Doug Wissoker
Abstract: Over the past three decades, fire department response has expanded from fire prevention and fire suppression to include multiple other community services such as emergency medical services, hazardous materials response, and special rescue. Today, ...

37. Rethinking Egress: A Vision for the Future
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1647
Published: 11/30/2009
Authors: Jason D Averill, Richard D Peacock
Abstract: New technologies and research are redefining the state-of-the-art in building evacuation. The time is right to rethink the entire infrastructure of egress from buildings in light new opportunities to address the economic and life-safety issues. App ...

38. Building Occupant Safety Research 2008
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1091
Published: 6/12/2009
Authors: Richard D Peacock, Jason D Averill, Erica D Kuligowski, Richard W. Bukowski
Abstract: Historically, building egress systems have evolved in response to specific large loss incidents. Currently, systems are designed around a concept of providing stair capacity for the largest occupant load floor in the building with little or no consid ...

39. CFAST - Consolidated Model of Fire Growth and Smoke Transport (Version 6), Software and Experimental Validation Guide
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1086
Published: 6/12/2009
Authors: Richard D Peacock, Kevin B McGrattan, Bryan W. Klein, Walter William Jones, Paul A Reneke
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 Capability of De ...

40. CFAST - Consolidated Model of Fire Growth and Smoke Transport (Version 6), Technical Reference Guide, APRIL 2009 REVISION
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1026
Published: 6/12/2009
Authors: Walter William Jones, Richard D Peacock, Glenn P Forney, Paul A Reneke
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 fire gases and the temperature throughout a building during a user-pr ...
