31. 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 ...

32. 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

33. 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 ...

34. 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 ...

35. 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 ...

36. 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 ...

37. Measurement of the Optical Extinction Coefficient of Combustion-Generated Aerosol. Technical Note.
Published: 12/1/2005
Authors: J F. Widmann, J x Duchez, Jiann C Yang, J M Conny, George William Mulholland
Abstract: This note describes measurements of the mass-specific extinction coefficient, \'01s, of carbonaceous aerosol produced during hydrocarbon combustion. Measurements of \'01s were obtained by laser extinction at \'02 = 632 nm. The aerosol was generated u ...

38. Passive Fire Protection. Federal Building and Fire Safety Investigation of the World Trade Center Disaster (NIST NCSTAR 1-6A)
Series: National Construction Safety Team Act Reports (NIST NCSTAR)
Report Number: 1-6
Published: 12/1/2005
Authors: Nicholas J. Carino, M A. Starnes, John L Gross, Jiann C Yang, S R. Kukuck, Kuldeep R Prasad, Richard W. Bukowski

39. Report of Experimental Results for the International Fire Model Benchmarking and Validation Exercise #3.
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 101
Published: 12/1/2005
Authors: Anthony P Hamins, Alexander Maranghides, Erik L Johnsson, Michelle K Donnelly, Jiann C Yang, George William Mulholland, Robert Anleitner
Abstract: The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) are participating in an International Collaborative Fire Model Project (ICFMP) to assess and validate fire computer codes for nuclear power plant ap ...

40. Ignition of Vegetation and Mulch by Firebrands in Wildland/Urban Interface (WUI) Fires.
Published: 11/13/2005
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Thomas George Cleary, John R Shields, Jiann C Yang
Abstract: Firebrands or embers are produced as trees and structures burn in wildland/urban interface (WUI) fires. Hot firebrands ultimately come to rest and may ignite fuels far removed from the fire, resulting in fire spread. It is believed that firebrand sho ...
