55. Sensitivity of a Smoke Toxicity Test Method to Test Conditions
Published: 9/26/2008
Authors: Nathan D Marsh, Richard George Gann, Jason D Averill, Marc R. Nyden
Abstract: Experiments have been conducted in the NFPA 269/ASTM E 1678 radiant apparatus to determine the sensitivity of toxic gas generation to atmospheric oxygen availability and to the conformation of the test specimen.  CO and HCN generation can be dep ...

58. Stairwell Evacuation from Buildings: What We Know We Don't Know
Published: 1/1/2009
Authors: Richard D Peacock, Jason D Averill, Erica D Kuligowski
Abstract: Occupant descent down stairwells during building evacuations is typically described by measurable engineering variables such as stairwell geometry, speed, density, and pre-evacuation delay. In turn, predictive models of building evacuation use these ...
