111. 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 ...

112. 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 ...

113. 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 ...

118. Carbon Monoxide Concentration Measurements in Fuel Cell Environments Using Tunable Diode Laser Absorption Spectroscopy (TDLAS): An Assessment
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6810
Published: Date unknown
Author: William M Pitts
Abstract: This report is an analysis of the potential of tunable laser diode absorption spectroscopy (TDLAS) for recording carbon monoxide (CO) concentrations in hydrogen fuel cell environments characteristic of those present during reforming of organic fuels. ...

119. Detailed Chemical-Kinetic Modeling of Thermal-Agent Diluted Methane and Propane Flames Near Extinguishment
Published: Date unknown
Authors: William M Pitts, Jiann C Yang, Rodney A Bryant, L G. Blevins, Marcia L Huber
Abstract: The use of halons for fire fighting is being phased out due to their deleterious effects on stratospheric ozone. This paper describes the findings of part of a study designed to characterize and identify super-effective thermal fire-fighting agents ...

120. Limit-Cycle Oscillations for Methane and Propane Coflow Diffusion Flames Burning in Nitrogen-Diluted Air
Published: Date unknown
Authors: William M Pitts, Rodney A Bryant
Abstract: There has been a great deal of recent experimental and, particularly, theoretical interest in the development of spatial and temporal oscillations in laminar diffusion flames. Studies indicate that the onset of oscillations (known as Hopf bifurcatio ...
