1. A dimensional analysis on firebrand penetration through a mesh screen
Published: 11/15/2015
Authors: Jiann C Yang, Samuel L Manzello
Abstract: A dimensional analysis on firebrand penetration through a mesh screen was carried out to provide a framework to correlate a limited set of experimental data previously reported by Manzello et al. (2011). Two dimensionless variables were obtained. ...

2. Performance of Metal and Polymeric O-Ring Seals in Beyond-Design-Basis Temperature Excursions ‹ Revision 1
Published: 11/2/2015
Authors: Jiann C Yang, Edward J Hnetkovsky, Doris L Rinehart, Marco G Fernandez
Abstract: This report documents the beyond-design-basis thermal exposure test results of the performance of metallic and polymeric seals typically used in radioactive material transportation packages. The overall objective of the project is to provide test ...

3. International R&D Roadmap for Fire Resistance of Structures Summary of NIST/CIB Workshop
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1188
Published: 6/11/2015
Authors: Jiann C Yang, Matthew F Bundy, John L Gross, Anthony P Hamins, Fahim Sadek, Anand Raghunathan
Abstract: This report summarizes the results of the global meeting to develop the International R&D Roadmap for Fire Resistance of Structures (the Roadmap) held May 21‹22, 2014, in Gaithersburg, Maryland. The workshop was sponsored by the National Instit ...

4. Experimental and Modeling Study of Thermal Exposure of a Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA)
Published: 6/10/2015
Authors: Michelle K Donnelly, Jiann C Yang
Abstract: An experimental apparatus designed to study firefighter turnout gears exposed to a thermal environment was developed. The apparatus consisted of an elevated temperature flow loop with the ability to heat the air stream up to 200 ºC. The thermal a ...

5. Reducing the Risk of Fire in Buildings and Communities
Published: 1/1/2014
Authors: Anthony P Hamins, Jason D Averill, Nelson P Bryner, David T Butry, Richard George Gann, Rick D Davis, Daniel M. Madrzykowski, Alexander Maranghides, Jiann C Yang, Matthew F Bundy, Samuel L Manzello, Jeffrey W Gilman, Francine K. Amon, William E. Mell
Abstract: Fire costs and losses are a significant life safety and economic burden on society comprising about two percent of the United States gross domestic product. This paper presents the results of a roadmap developed by the National Institute of Standar ...

6. High Pressure Release and Dispersion of Hydrogen in a Partially Enclosed Compartment : Effect of Natural and Forced Ventilation
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Published: 9/2/2013
Authors: Kuldeep R Prasad, Thomas George Cleary, 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 due to ...

7. Measurements of effective diffusion coefficients of helium and hydrogen through gypsum
Published: 7/3/2013
Authors: Jiann C Yang, William M Pitts, Marco G Fernandez, Kuldeep R Prasad
Abstract: An experimental apparatus, which was based on the ¿-scale garage previously used for studying helium release and dispersion in our laboratory, was used to obtain effective diffusion coefficients of helium and hydrogen (released as forming gas for s ...

8. Helium Dispersion in an Attached Single-Car Residential Garage with and Without Vehicle
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1731
Published: 10/2/2012
Authors: William M Pitts, Jiann C Yang, Marco G Fernandez, Kuldeep R Prasad
Abstract: The dispersion and loss of helium inside a single-car residential garage attached to a single-family house was experimentally characterized by recording time-resolved helium concentrations at multiple locations in the garage and at a single locat ...

9. Motorcoach Tire Fires ‹ Passenger Compartment Penetration, Tenability, Mitigation, and Material Performance
Published: 9/27/2012
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 o ...

10. Experimental Study on Tire Fire Penetration into a Motorcoach Passenger Compartment
Published: 9/13/2012
Authors: Erik L Johnsson, Jiann C Yang
Abstract: Two full-scale fire experiments were conducted to determine the mode of penetration of a tire fire into the passenger compartment of a motorcoach. A special burner was designed to imitate the frictional heating of hub and wheel metal caused by f ...
