1. 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 ...

2. Fire Hazard Comparison of Fire-Retarded and Non-Fire-Retarded Products (NBS SP 749)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 749
Published: 7/1/1988
Authors: Vyto Babrauskas, Richard H. Harris Jr., Richard George Gann, Barbara C. Levin, B T Lee, Richard D Peacock, M Paabo, W H. Twilley, M F Yoklavich, H M Clark
Abstract: A test program was conducted for the Fire Retardant Chemicals Association to quantify the effects of fire retardant chemicals on total fire hazard. Five different types of products, each made from a different type of plastic were used. The products ...

3. Measurement of Toxic Potency for Fire Hazard Analysis
Series: OTHER
Published: 5/18/1992
Authors: Vyto Babrauskas, Barbara C. Levin, Richard George Gann, M Paabo, Richard H. Harris Jr., Richard D Peacock, S Yusa
Abstract: This study is the principle product of a research program to provide a technically sound methodology for obtaining and using smoke toxicity data for hazard analysis. It establishes: (a) an improved bench-scale toxic potency measurement, one which re ...

5. Preliminary Screening Procedures and Criteria for Replacements for Halons 1211 and 1301 (NIST TN 1278)
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1278
Published: 8/1/1990
Authors: Richard George Gann, J D. Barnes, S Davis, J S Harris, Richard H. Harris Jr., J T. Herron, Barbara C. Levin, F I. Mopsik, Kathy A. Notarianni, Marc R Nyden, M Paabo, Richard E Ricker
Abstract: The current halogenated fire suppressants, halons 1301 and 1211, are among the compounds whose production is restricted by the Montreal Protocol of 1987. The objective of this project is to facilitate identification of alternative chemicals by devel ...

6. 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 ...

7. Reevaluation of Experimental Cigarettes Used in the Cigarette Safety Act of 1984. Report of Test (Report of Test FR 3984)
Series: OTHER
Report Number: 3984
Published: 5/1/1991
Authors: Richard H. Harris Jr., Magdalena Navarro, Richard George Gann, K Eberhardt
Abstract: Experimental cigarettes which had been stored for several years in freezers were reevaluated on mockups constructed from the same materials in the original study and statistically analyzed for differences in their ignition propensity.

8. Role of Bench-Scale Test Data in Assessing Real-Scale Fire Toxicity (NIST TN 1284)
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1284
Published: 1/1/1991
Authors: Vyto Babrauskas, Richard H. Harris Jr., E Braun, Barbara C. Levin, M Paabo, Richard George Gann
Abstract: The need was seen for establishing a methodology by which bench-scale fire toxicity methods could be validated against real-scale room fires. The present study is the result of a pilot project in this area. Appropriate validation hypotheses have bee ...

9. Smoke Component Yields From Room-Scale Fire Tests (NIST TN 1453)
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1453
Published: 4/1/2003
Authors: Richard George Gann, Jason D Averill, Erik L Johnsson, Marc R Nyden, Richard D Peacock
Abstract: This report presents the methodology for and results from a series of room-scale fire tests to produce data on the yields of toxic products in both pre-flashover and post-flashover fires. The combustibles examined were: a sofa made of upholstered cu ...
