101. 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 ...

102. 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: ...

103. 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 ...

104. 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 ...

105. 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 ...

106. 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 ...

107. 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. ...

108. 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 ...

109. 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 ...

110. 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 ...
