1. Fire Dynamics Simulator (Version 3): Users Guide (NISTIR 6748)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6748
Published: 11/1/2002
Authors: Kevin B McGrattan, Glenn P Forney, J E. Floyd, Simo A Hostikka, Kuldeep R Prasad
Abstract: Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS) is a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model of fire-driven fluid flow. The software described in this document solves numerically a form of the Navier-Stokes equations appropriate for low-speed, thermally-driven flow ...

2. Future of Fire Simulation
Published: 12/1/2002
Authors: Kevin B McGrattan, Howard Richard Baum, Ronald G. Rehm, Glenn P Forney, Kuldeep R Prasad
Abstract: Scientists and engineers are often asked to make predictions of the state of technology in the future and are usually laughably wrong. The best prognosticators get the trends right, but cannot possibly fill in the details. Think of Jules Verne predi ...

3. Initial Model for Fires in the World Trade Center Towers (NISTIR 6879)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6879
Published: 5/1/2002
Authors: Ronald G. Rehm, William M Pitts, Howard Richard Baum, D D Evans, Kuldeep R Prasad, Kevin B McGrattan, Glenn P Forney
Abstract: Based on preliminary assumptions and analysis, mathematical models have been used to estimate the behavior of the fires in the twin towers of the World Trade Center (WTC) on September 11, 2001. The hijacked-plane collision with each tower produced s ...

4. A Heat Transfer Model for Firefighters Protective Clothing, Continued Developments in Protective Clothing Modeling
Published: 2/7/2010
Authors: James R. Lawson, William E. Mell, Kuldeep R Prasad
Abstract: In the year 2000, a paper entitled A Heat Transfer Model for Firefighters Protective Clothing was published in Volume 36, No. 1, of Fire Technology, and it received the 2001 Harry C. Bigglestone Award for Excellence in Written Communication of Fir ...

5. A Materials Science-Based Approach to Characterizing Fire Resistive Materials
Published: 4/9/2009
Authors: Dale P Bentz, Christopher C White, Kuldeep R Prasad, Daniel Robert Flynn, Donald Lee Hunston, Kar T. Tan
Abstract: While ASTM E119-07a is commonly employed to establish a fire rating for a fire resistive material (FRM)/steel assembly, the test method provides little quantitative information on either the thermophysical or adhesion properties of the FRM, beyond in ...

6. A Multiblock Technique for Simulating Fire and Smoke Spread in Large Complex Enclosures
Published: 6/21/2003
Authors: Kuldeep R Prasad, G P Patnaik, Ravinder Nath
Abstract: Several recent developments in computational techniques have been combined todevelop a tool for simulating the reactive flow field inside large complex enclosures.The multiblock technique was adopted to solve the unsteady compressible Navier-Stokes e ...

Published: 3/4/2011
Authors: Kuldeep R Prasad, William M Pitts, Jiann C Yang
Abstract: Development of the hydrogen economy will require a better understanding of the potential for fires and explosions associated with the unintended release of hydrogen within a structure. The ability to predict the mixing and dispersion behavior of hydr ...

8. An Experimental Study on the Behavior of Full-Scale Frames With Slim Floor Slab Construction Under Furnace Loading
Published: Date unknown
Authors: Yuli Dong, Kuldeep R Prasad
Abstract: In recent years, increasing interest has been shown in developing and designing slim floor systems in steel-framed buildings. This paper describes the results of a furnace test conducted on two full-scale composite steel frames with slim floor slab c ...

9. Continuous measurement and large-eddy simulation of greenhouse gas emissions at local spatial scales
Published: 2/28/2013
Authors: Kuldeep R Prasad, Elena Novakovskaia, Adam Nottrott, Ralph Keeling, Chris Sloop
Abstract: Natural gas ‹ a hydrocarbon gas mixture that consists primarily of CH4 ‹ is perceived as ,transition fuelŠ due to its high energy density and lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions during combustion relative to coal and oil. However, considering the ...

10. Coupled Fire Dynamics and Thermal Response of Complex Building Structures.
