23. Challenges to Fire Safety in Tall Buildings.
Published: 10/16/2005
Author: Richard George Gann
Abstract: In order to increase the chances of survival during a fire emergency, the time available for a person to leave the danger zone must be longer than the time needed to make the escape. For tall buildings, providing time for people to reach safety requi ...

24. Chapter 2Combustion Products and Their Effects on Life Safety
Published: 6/30/2008
Authors: Richard George Gann, Nelson P Bryner
Abstract: All combustibles produce heat and smoke that, in sufficiently high concentration, may be hazardous to life safety. Incapacitation can result from exposure to the asphyxiant gases, irritant gases, and heat. Irritant gases and visible smoke can reduce ...

25. Collected Publications From the Next Generation Fire Suppression Technology Program
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1069-1
Published: 12/6/2007
Author: Richard George Gann
Abstract: In its decade of systematic research (1997-2006), the NGP revitalized the field of fire suppression science. The NGP arose as a result of a discovery that garnered the Nobel Prize for two accomplished chemists and legislation that turned science int ...

26. Combustion Products and Their Effects on Life Safety.
Published: 9/1/2008
Authors: Richard George Gann, Nelson P Bryner

27. 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 ...

30. Environmental Concerns of Fires: Facts, Figures, Questions and New Challenges for the Future
Published: 7/7/2004
Authors: G Marlair, M Simonson, Richard George Gann
Abstract: The effect of fires on the environment has been increasingly in the public eye since the chemical warehouse accident in the Sandoz facility in Schweizerhalle in November 1986. This paper presents a discussion of this accident together with a represen ...
