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 ...

2. A Thermodynamic Analysis of Refilling of a Hydrogen Tank
Published: 8/31/2009
Author: Jiann C Yang
Abstract: A thermodynamic analysis of refilling of a gaseous hydrogen fuel tank is described. This study may lend itself to the applications of refilling a hydrogen storage tank onboard a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle. The gaseous hydrogen is treated as an idea ...

3. 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. ...

4. Aerosol and SPGG Technology Fire Suppression Screening Methods (NISTIR 5904)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5904
Published: 10/28/1996
Authors: William L Grosshandler, Jiann C Yang, Thomas George Cleary
Abstract: The search for alternatives to halons for fire suppression applications has identified not only new compounds which have physical properties similar to the bromochlorofluorocarbon family, but also inert gaseous agents that are released from a solid s ...

5. Agent Screening for Halon 1301 Aviation Replacement
Published: 10/20/1993
Authors: William L Grosshandler, Richard George Gann, Anthony P Hamins, Marc R. Nyden, William M Pitts, Jiann C Yang, Michael Russel Zachariah
Abstract: A comprehensive experimental program is described in which eleven gaseous agents and sodium bicarbonate powder have been screened, so that the best three candidates for subsequent full-scale aircraft fire extinguishment evaluation can be identified. ...

6. An Analysis of the Wright Patterson Full-Scale Engine Nacelle Fire Suppression Experiments (NISTIR 6193)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6193
Published: 11/1/1997
Authors: Anthony P Hamins, Thomas George Cleary, Jiann C Yang
Abstract: An analysis is presented on the full-scale suppression experiments conducted during 1996 and 1997 in the F-22 engine nacelle fire simulator at Wright Patterson Air Force Base. Experiments investigated the relative effectiveness of halogenated agents ...

7. An Apparatus for Evaluating Liquid Fire Suppressants
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 984-4
Published: 5/12/1998
Authors: Jiann C Yang, Michelle K Donnelly, William L Grosshandler, N C Prive
Abstract: Cup burners have been extensively used as a fire suppression efficiency screening tool for gaseous halon alternatives. In the search for alternatives to halons in fire suppression, it is likely that several types of condensed-phase compounds will be ...

8. An Experimental Study of High Weber Number Impact of Methoxy-Nonafluorobutane C^d4^F^d9^OCH^d3^ (HFE-7100) and n-Heptane Droplets on a Heated Solid Surface
Published: 3/1/2002
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Jiann C Yang
Abstract: An experimental study is presented for methoxy-nonafluorobutane (C^d4^F^d9^OCH^d3^, HFE-7100) droplet impingement on a heated stainless steel surface. The impaction process was recorded using a high-speed digital camera at 1000 frames per second. T ...

9. An Experimentral Investigation of Water Droplet Impingement on a Heated Wax Surface
Published: 1/1/2004
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Jiann C Yang
Abstract: The impact of a distilled water droplet upon a heated wax surface was investigated experimentally using a high-speed digital camera. The droplet impact Weber numbers (We) was varied and the collision dynamics were investigated with the temperature of ...

10. 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 ...
