111. 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 ...

112. 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 ...

113. 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 ...

114. 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 ...

115. Chemically Reacting Turbulent Flow. Final Report.
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Published: 3/1/1986
Authors: William M Pitts, Takashi Kashiwagi

116. Effects of Global Density and Reynolds Number Variations on Mixing in Turbulent, Axisymmetric Jets.
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Published: 3/1/1986
Author: William M Pitts

117. Response Behavior of Hot-Wires and Films to Flows of Different Gases.
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Published: 7/1/1985
Authors: William M Pitts, B J Mccaffrey

118. Application of Laser-Induced Rayleigh Light Scattering to the Study of Tubulent Mixing.
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Published: 2/1/1983
Authors: William M Pitts, Takashi Kashiwagi

119. 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. ...

120. 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 ...
