94. Methodology for Obtaining and Using Toxic Potency Data for Fire Hazard Analysis
Published: 1/1/1998
Authors: Vyto Babrauskas, Richard George Gann, Barbara C. Levin, M Paabo, Richard H. Harris Jr., Richard D Peacock, S Yusa
Abstract: A comprehensive methodology has been developed for obtaining and using smoke toxicity data for fire hazard analysis. This description of the methodology comprises (1) determination that the post-flashover fire is the proper focus of smoke inhalation ...

95. Conclusion.
Published: 11/1/1995
Author: Richard George Gann
Abstract: This report presents the results of two years of research in support of the objective to identify and make ready for use the optimal near-term fluid to replace halon 1301 for in-flight fire suppression in aircraft engine nacelles and dry bays. At the ...

96. Quantifying the Ignition Propensity of Cigarettes
Published: 7/1/1995
Authors: Thomas J. Ohlemiller, K M Villa, E Braun, K Eberhardt, Richard H. Harris Jr., James R. Lawson, Richard George Gann
Abstract: Research funded under the Fire Safe Cigarette Act of 1990 (United States Public Law 101-35) has led to the development of two test methods for measuring the ignition propensity of cigarettes. The Mock-Up Ignition Test Method uses substrates physical ...

97. Compatibility of Halon Alternatives During Storage
Published: 8/21/1994
Authors: Richard George Gann, Carlos R Beauchamp, Thomas George Cleary, J L. Fink, Richard H. Harris Jr., F Horkay, G B. McKenna, Thomas P Moffat, Marc R. Nyden, Richard D Peacock, Richard E Ricker, Mark R Stoudt, W. K. Waldron
Abstract: A key facet of the evaluation of new fire suppressants is their behavior under pressure and at elevated temperature in a metal storage container with an elastomer seal. In this study, 13 candidate chemicals have been examines: C2F6, C3F8, C4F10, cycl ...

98. Fire Conditions for Smoke Toxicity Measurement
Published: 5/1/1994
Authors: Richard George Gann, V Babrauskas, Richard D Peacock, J R Hall
Abstract: This paper identifies those fire conditions most often present when smoke toxicity is the cause of death. It begins with a review of the evidence that smoke-inhalation deaths are in the majority in fire fatalities in the United States. Next, there i ...

Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 861
Published: 4/1/1994
Authors: William L Grosshandler, Richard George Gann, William M Pitts
Abstract: Bromotrifluoromethane (halon 1301 or CF3Br) has been the fire-fighting agent of choice for decades to protect inaccessible spaces aboard aircraft in flight because of its inherent ability to inhibit combustion while possessing a high liquid density a ...
