31. An Investigation of Extinguishment by Thermal Agents Using Detailed Chemical Modeling of Opposed Jet Diffusion Flames
Published: 3/3/2008
Authors: William M Pitts, Jiann C Yang, Rodney A Bryant, Linda G Blevins
Abstract: Detailed chemical kinetic modeling of methane planar opposed-jet laminar diffusion flames burning in air mixed with a variety of thermal agents is used to characterize their effects on maximum flame temperature and extinction behavior. The identific ...

32. On the Use of a Firebrand Generator to Investigate the Ignition of Structures in Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) Fires.
Published: 9/1/2007
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, John R Shields, Jiann C Yang, Yoshihiko Hayashi, Daisaku Nii
Abstract: An experimental apparatus has been constructed to generate a controlled and repeatable size and mass distribution of glowing firebrands. The present study reports on a series of experiments conducted in order to characterize the performance of this f ...

33. Verification of a Gas Mask Calibrant
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Published: 2/19/2007
Authors: Robert A Fletcher, Jiann C Yang, George William Mulholland, R Lance King, Michael R Winchester, D Klinedinst, Jennifer R Verkouteren, Thomas George Cleary, David Buckingham, James J Filliben

34. Ignition of Mulch and Grasses by Firebrands in Wildland-Urban Interface Fires.
Published: 12/1/2006
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Thomas George Cleary, John R Shields, Jiann C Yang

35. On the Ignition of Fuel Beds by Firebrands.
Published: 12/1/2006
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Thomas George Cleary, John R Shields, Jiann C Yang
Abstract: An experimental apparatus has been built to investigate the ignition of fuel beds as a result of impact with burning firebrands. The apparatus allowed for the ignition and deposition of both single and multiple firebrands onto the target fuel bed. Th ...

36. Towards a Methodology for the Characterization of Fire Resistive Materials With Respect to Thermal Performance Models.
Published: 12/1/2006
Authors: Dale P Bentz, Kuldeep R Prasad, Jiann C Yang

37. Firebrand Production From Burning Vegetation
Published: 11/30/2006
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Alexander Maranghides, William E. Mell, Thomas George Cleary, Jiann C Yang
Abstract: A series of real scale fire experiments were performed to determine the size and mass distribution of firebrands generated from Douglas-Fir (pseudotsuga menziesii) trees. The results of the real scale fire experiments were used to determine firebran ...

38. Screening Candidates for 30 nm Spheres
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7345
Published: 8/1/2006
Authors: Michelle K Donnelly, Jiann C Yang
Abstract: This paper describes the preliminary screening process that was conducted to identify potential candidate particles to be used as the NIST Standard Reference Material (SRM) 30 nm spheres. Five different samples were obtained and measured using the N ...

39. Characterization and Identification of Super-Effective Thermal Fire Extinguishing Agents. Final Report. NGP Project 4C/1/890.
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1440
Published: 7/1/2006
Authors: William M Pitts, Jiann C Yang, Rodney A Bryant, L G. Blevins, Marcia L Huber
Abstract: The use of halon 1301 for fire fighting is being phased out due to its deleterious effects on stratospheric ozone. This report summarizes the findings of a three-year study designed to characterize and identify super-effective thermal fire-fighting a ...

40. Fluid Dispensing and Dispersion
Published: 5/16/2006
Authors: Jiann C Yang, David R Keyser
Abstract: This paper is a condensed version of a chapter in the forthcoming Next Generation Program (NGP) final report edited by the authors. It summarizes the research conducted during the NGP program on fluid dispensing and dispersion within aircraft engine ...
