91. Discharge Characteristics of Cryogenic Fluids From a Pressurized Vessel
Published: 7/18/1994
Authors: Jiann C Yang, William M Pitts, B D Breuel, G. Gmurczyk, William J. Rinkinen, W G Cleveland
Abstract: An experimental technique to study the rapid release of liquid cryogenic fluids from a pressurized vessel orientated downward is described. A rupture disc was used as the release mechanism. Experimental observations were made on the discharge charact ...

92. Global Equivalence Ratio Concept and the Prediction of Carbon Monoxide Formation in Enclosure Fires (NIST Monograph 179)
Series: Monograph (NIST MN)
Report Number: 179
Published: 6/1/1994
Author: William M Pitts
Abstract: This report summarizes a large number of investigations designed to characterize the formation of carbon monoxide (CO) in enclosures fires - the most important factor in fire deaths. It includes the first complete review and analysis of the studies w ...

93. Evaluation of Alternative In-Flight Fire Suppressants for Full-Scale Testing in Simulated Aircraft Engine Nacelles and Dry Bays (NIST SP 861)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 861
Published: 4/1/1994
Authors: William L. Grosshandler, Richard George Gann, William M Pitts
http://www.nist.gov/manuscript-publication-search.cfm?pub_id=911642

94. Executive Summary (NIST SP 861)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 861
Published: 4/1/1994
Authors: William L. Grosshandler, Richard George Gann, William M Pitts
Abstract: Bromotrifluoromethane (halon 1301 or CF3Br) has been the fire-fighting agent of choice for decades to protect inaccessible spaces aboard aircraft in flight because of its inherent ability to inhibit combustion while possessing a high liquid density a ...

95. Fluid Dynamics of Agent Discharge (NIST SP 861)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 861
Published: 4/1/1994
Authors: William M Pitts, Jiann C Yang, G. Gmurczyk, Leonard Y. Cooper, William L. Grosshandler, W G Cleveland, Cary Presser
Abstract: The extinguishment of a fire using gaseous agents is a very complicated process which is not completely understood. Current fire-fighting agents such as halon 1301 and halon 1211 are believed to function by a combination of chemical (catalytic remova ...

96. Introduction (NIST SP 861)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 861
Published: 4/1/1994
Authors: William L. Grosshandler, Richard George Gann, William M Pitts
Abstract: The Montreal Protocol of 1987 identified halon 1301 (CF3Br) as one of a number of halogenated chemicals that were sufficiently deleterious to stratospheric ozone that their continued production and use required limitation. An amendment to the Protoco ...

97. Summary and Recommendations (NIST SP 861)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 861
Published: 4/1/1994
Authors: William L. Grosshandler, Richard George Gann, William M Pitts
Abstract: The main objective of this research program was to provide guidance to the sponsors on which materials to evaluate in the full-scale fire suppression test plan at Wright-Patterson AFB. Specifically, the recommendations were to include the following: ...

98. Application of Thermodynamic and Detailed Chemical Kinetic Modeling to Understanding Combustion Product Generation in Enclosure Fires
Published: 1/1/1994
Author: William M Pitts
Abstract: Experiments in idealized two-layer fire environments have demonstrated that concentrations of carbon monoxide and other gaseous combustion products can be correlated in terms of the global eqivalence ratio. In this paper the results of detailed chemi ...

99. Mixing and Evaporation of Potential Halon 1301 Replacement Agents Following Release from Pressurized Bottles
Series: OTHER
Published: 1/1/1994
Authors: William M Pitts, Jiann C Yang, B D Breuel
Abstract: The mixing and evaporation behavior of releases of potential halonreplacements for fire suppression have been investigated as part of a USAFadministered Halon Replacement Project. Ten agents have been considered: FC-31-10, FC-318, HCFC-124, HFC-22 ...

100. Sidejet Strength and Mixing in Self-Excited Jets. [Abstract ONLY]
Published: 11/21/1993
Authors: A W Johnson, William M Pitts
Abstract: Absolutely unstable jet flows are known to produce vigorous and intermittent lateral ejections of fluid, or 'sidejets'. Sidejet generation has been attributed to the near-field interaction of axisymmetric vorticies, streamwise vorticies, and lobes fo ...
