101. Aerosol and SPGG Technology Fire Suppression Screening Methods (NISTIR 5904)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5904
Published: 10/28/1996
Authors: William L Grosshandler, Jiann C Yang, Thomas George Cleary
Abstract: The search for alternatives to halons for fire suppression applications has identified not only new compounds which have physical properties similar to the bromochlorofluorocarbon family, but also inert gaseous agents that are released from a solid s ...

102. Combustion of Polymethylmethacrylate Spheres at Normal and Reduced Gravity (NISTIR 5904)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5904
Published: 10/28/1996
Authors: Jiann C Yang, Anthony P Hamins, N Gorchkov, M Glover
Abstract: Polymer combustion is a highly complicated process where chemical reactions may occur not only in the gas phase, but also in the condensed phase as well as at the solid-gas interphase. The complication arises due to the coupling between the condensed ...

103. Evaporation of a Small Aqueous Suppressing Agent Droplet (NISTIR 5904)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5904
Published: 10/1/1996
Authors: W. S. Chien, Jiann C Yang, M D King, William L Grosshandler
Abstract: Due to its ozone-depleting potential, halon 1301 (CF3Br) has been banned from production under the Montreal Protocol. The research for halon replacement(s) has led to the reconsideration of using water in certain applications. However, under cold sto ...

104. Minimum Mass Flux Requirements to Suppress Burning Surfaces With Water Sprays (NISTIR 5795)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5795
Published: 4/1/1996
Authors: Jiann C Yang, C I Boyer, William L Grosshandler
Abstract: Experimental measurements of extinguishment times of burning solid fuels using water were conducted using a prototype micronozzle array and a piezoelectric droplet generator. Solid fuels considered included solid white pine, polymethylmethacrylate, a ...

105. 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 ...

106. Introductory Remarks (NISTIR 5766)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5766
Published: 11/1/1995
Author: Jiann C Yang
Abstract: Objectives of the Workshop: (1) to identify what we know and don't know in gas generator technology for fire suppression; (2) to identify future research areas in gas generator technology for fire suppression; (3) to identify potential users and addr ...

107. 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 ...

108. 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 ...

109. 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 ...

110. 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 ...
