101. Rapid Discharge of a Fire Suppressing Agent
Published: 1/1/1996
Authors: Jiann C Yang, William M Pitts, B D Breuel, William L. Grosshandler, W G Cleveland
Abstract: This paper describes an experimental method to study the rapid discharge of a fire suppressant (C3F8) from a pressurized vessel. Experimental observations inside and at the exit of the vessel were made using high-speed photography. Boiling was not ob ...

103. Optimization of System Discharge (NIST SP 890)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 890
Published: 11/1/1995
Authors: Jiann C Yang, Thomas George Cleary, I Vazquez, C I Boyer, M D King, B D Breuel, C A. Womeldorf, William L. Grosshandler, Marcia L Huber, L Weber, G. Gmurczyk
Abstract: Current aircraft fire suppression bottles for dry bay and engine nacelle applications, which are designed to meet Military Specification MIL-C-22284A (proof pressure of 9.62 MPa and minimum burst pressure of 12.37 MPa), are normally filled with liqui ...

104. Solid Propellant Gas Generators: Proceedings of the 1995 Workshop (NISTIR 5766)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5766
Published: 11/1/1995
Authors: Jiann C Yang, William L. Grosshandler
Abstract: A workshop on solid propellant gas generators was held on June 28-29, 1995 at the National Institute of Standards and Technology under the sponsorship of the Building and Fire Research Laboratory. Gas generator technology was first proposed as altern ...

105. Storage and Discharge Characteristics of Halon Alternatives
Published: 10/21/1995
Authors: Jiann C Yang, Thomas George Cleary, I Vazquez, C I Boyer, M D King, B D Breuel, Marcia L Huber, L Weber
Abstract: Three important issues regarding the use of halon alternatives for in-flight fire protection applications were studied as part of the current halon alternative research program at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST): (1) the con ...

106. Solid Propellant Gas Generators: An Overview and Their Application to Fire Suppression (NISTIR 5766)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5766
Published: 6/28/1995
Authors: Jiann C Yang, William L. Grosshandler
Abstract: A solid propellant gas generator is essentially an airbag inflator without a bag. That is, the gas generated is discharged directly into ambience rather than into a bag. A typical solid propellant gas generator consists of solid propellant tablets wh ...

107. Model for Calculating Alternative Agent/Nitrogen Thermodynamic Properties
Published: 5/9/1995
Authors: Jiann C Yang, Marcia L Huber, C I Boyer
Abstract: A thermodynamic model based on the extended corresponding states principle has been developed to calculate the solubilities of nitrogen in five selected agents, HFC-227ea, CF3I, FC-218, HFC-125, and CF3Br and the pressure-temperature relationship for ...

108. Pipe Flow Characteristics of Alternative Agents for Engine Nacelle Fire Protection
Series: OTHER
Published: 1/1/1995
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, Jiann C Yang, William L. Grosshandler, Michelle King, C I Boyer
Abstract: As part of the U.S. Air Force, Army, Navy and FAA Halon Replacement Project at NIST, the pipe flow characteristics were investigated for three engine nacelle alternative candidates: HFC-227ea, HFC-125 and CF31. The flow regime in suppression system ...

109. Experimental Studies on Discharge of Alternative Agent/Nitrogen Mixtures in a Simulated Dry Bay (NISTIR 5499)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5499
Published: 9/1/1994
Authors: Jiann C Yang, Thomas George Cleary, Roy A McLane, William L. Grosshandler
Abstract: Discharge of the three selected alternative agents for aircraft dry bay fire protection has been conducted in a simulated dry bay (i.e., in an unconfined space). The three selected agents are CF3I, FC-218, and HFC-125. Halon 1301 is also included in ...

110. Halon 1301 Surrogates for Engine Nacelle Fire Suppression System Certification (NISTIR 5499)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5499
Published: 9/1/1994
Authors: C A. Womeldorf, Jiann C Yang, William L. Grosshandler
Abstract: Until recently halon 1301 has been regularly discharged in Navy aircraft engine nacelles to certify that the fire suppression systems distribute the fire suppressant effectively. Halon 1301 can no longer be used in this manner because of its high ozo ...
