11. Performance of Metal and Polymeric O-Ring Seals in Beyond-Design Temperature Excursions.
Published: 4/27/2012
Authors: Jiann C Yang, Edward J Hnetkovsky
Abstract: This report documents the beyond-design-basis test results of the performance of one metallic and two elastomeric seals typically used in spent fuel transportation packages. Tests were conducted using a scale-model package made of stainless steel SS ...

12. Strategic Roadmap for Fire Risk Reduction in Buildings and Communities
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1130
Published: 4/18/2012
Authors: Anthony P Hamins, Jason D Averill, Richard George Gann, Nelson P Bryner, Rick D Davis, David T Butry, Alexander Maranghides, Jiann C Yang, Daniel Madrzykowski, Matthew F Bundy, Samuel L Manzello, Jeffrey W Gilman, Francine K. Amon, William E. Mell
Abstract: The burden of fire on the U.S. economy continues to be large, comprising approximately $280 billion annually, or 2 percent of GDP. Over the last 30 years, civilian fire deaths and injuries have decreased due to the efforts of many people and org ...

13. Motorcoach Flammability Project Final Report: Tire Fires - Passenger Compartment Penetration, Tenability, Mitigation, and Material Performance
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1705
Published: 1/27/2012
Authors: Erik L Johnsson, Jiann C Yang
Abstract: Full scale fire experiments were conducted at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to investigate tire fire interactions with the passenger compartment of a motorcoach. A burner was designed to imitate the frictional heating of ...

Published: 12/19/2011
Authors: Kuldeep R Prasad, William M Pitts, Marco G Fernandez, Jiann C Yang
Abstract: Increase in the number of hydrogen fueled applications in the marketplace will require a better understanding of the potential for fires and explosion associated with the unintended release of hydrogen within a structure. Predicting the temporally ev ...

15. Comparison of Gas Velocity Measurements and CFD Predictions in the Exhaust Duct of a Stationary Source
Published: 7/13/2011
Authors: Rodney A Bryant, Olatunde B. Sanni, Elizabeth F Moore, Robert P. Borthwick, Marco G Fernandez, Iosif I Shinder, Jiann C Yang, Aaron N Johnson
Abstract: Two series of independent flow measurements were conducted for cross validation of flow velocity in the exhaust duct of the NIST Large Fire Laboratory. In the first series, two pressure measurement probe types, an S probe and a 3-D probe, were used t ...

16. Examination of United States Carbon Dioxide Emission Databases
Published: 6/10/2011
Authors: Robert P. Borthwick, James R Whetstone, Jiann C Yang, Antonio M Possolo
Abstract: This paper compared carbon dioxide emissions from plants obtained in two ways, first from the US Department of Energy, Energy Information Administration EIA-767 database and EIA-1605 Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program guidelines and second from the U.S ...

17. Experimental Characterization of Helium Dispersion in a -Scale Two-Car Residential Garage (NIST TN 1694)
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1694
Published: 3/29/2011
Authors: William M Pitts, Jiann C Yang, Marco G Fernandez
Abstract: A series of experiments are described in which helium was released at constant rates into a 1.5 m 1.5 m 0.75 m enclosure designed as a -scale model of a two car garage. The purpose was to provide reference data sets for testing and validating c ...

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 ...

19. High Pressure Release and Dispersion of Hydrogen in a Partially Enclosed Compartment
Published: 3/1/2011
Authors: Kuldeep R Prasad, Thomas George Cleary, William M Pitts, Jiann C Yang
Abstract: The study of compressed hydrogen release from high-pressure storage systems has practical application for hydrogen and fuel cell technologies. Such releases may occur either due to accidental damage to a storage tank or connecting piping, or direct ...

20. Spent Fuel Cask Seal Performance Testing: Interim Report (NIST TN 1687)
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1687
Published: 1/31/2011
Authors: Jiann C Yang, Edward J Hnetkovsky
Abstract: High-temperature metallic seal performance tests were performed. All the tests were conducted at either 800 °C or 427 °C for 9 hours in a electrical furnace. In the three repeated tests under similar beyond-design-basis thermal exposure conditions ...
