101. Rayleigh Light Scattering Studies of Turbulent Mixing
Published: 10/25/1993
Author: William M Pitts
Abstract: Turbulent combustion remains a very active research area. This interest is justified due to the pivotal role it plays in a wide variety of technologically important processes. Development of models for combusting flows is crucial for the more efficie ...

102. Agent Screening for Halon 1301 Aviation Replacement
Published: 10/20/1993
Authors: William L. Grosshandler, Richard George Gann, Anthony P Hamins, Marc R Nyden, William M Pitts, Jiann C Yang, Michael Russel Zachariah
Abstract: A comprehensive experimental program is described in which eleven gaseous agents and sodium bicarbonate powder have been screened, so that the best three candidates for subsequent full-scale aircraft fire extinguishment evaluation can be identified. ...

103. Dynamics of the Release of Alternate Halon Replacement Agents From Pressurized Bottles
Published: 5/11/1993
Authors: William M Pitts, Jiann C Yang, B D Breuel, W G Cleveland, G. Gmurczyk
Abstract: Halon 1301 has been widely employed on military and commercial aircraft for fire fighting purposes. Unfortunately, due to the deleterious effects of chlorine and bromine on stratospheric ozone, the manufacture of halon 1301 will be phased out by the ...

104. Production Mechanisms for Carbon Monoxide in Enclosure Fires
Published: 3/15/1993
Authors: William M Pitts, Nelson P Bryner, Erik L Johnsson
Abstract: Roughly two thirds of all deaths resulting from enclosure fires can be attributed to the presence of carbon monoxide (CO), which is known to be the dominant toxicant in fire deaths. The mechanisms responsible for the generation of high concentrations ...

105. Global Density Effects on the Self-Preservation Behavior of Turbulent Free Jets
Published: 1/1/1993
Authors: C D Richards, William M Pitts
Abstract: An experimental investigation was designed to test the hypothesis that all axisymmetric turbulent free jets become asymptotically independent of the source conditions and may be described by classical similarity analysis. Effects of initial condition ...

106. Greatly Enhanced Soot Scattering in Flickering CH4/Air Diffusion Flames
Published: 1/1/1993
Authors: K C Smyth, J E Harrington, Erik L Johnsson, William M Pitts
Abstract: Planar images of laser-induced fluorescence from OH radicals and elastic scattering from soot particles are presented in time-varying laminar CH4/air diffusion flames burning in a co-flowing, axisymmetric configuration at atmospheric pressure. Acoust ...

107. Limitations of the Global Equivalence Ratio Concept for Predicting CO Formation in Room Fires
Published: 10/27/1992
Author: William M Pitts
Abstract: Recent experimental and modeling efforts designed to characterize the formation of carbon monoxide (CO) in enclosure fires which were funded by or performed at the Building and Fire Research Laboratory (BFRL) of the National Institute of Standards an ...

108. Reactivity of Product Gases Generated in Idealized Enclosure Fire Environments
Published: 7/5/1992
Author: William M Pitts
Abstract: Previous experiments have demonstrated that the mole fractions of major product gases trapped in a hood located above a fire can be correlated in terms of the global equivalence ratio. Temperatures in the hood experiments have generally been low. Ful ...

109. Carbon Monoxide Production and Prediction (NISTIR 4449)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 4449
Published: 10/19/1989
Author: William M Pitts
Abstract: A long-term research plan has been formulated which is designed to improve the understanding of and predictive capability for the formation of carbon monoxide in enclosure fires. The current understanding of the problem is briefly discussed. Goals (m ...
