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. ...

5. 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. 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 ...
