41. Particulate Entry Lag in Spot-Type Smoke Detectors
Published: 7/5/1999
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, Artur A Chernovsky, William L Grosshandler, Michael D. Anderson
Abstract: It is well documented that alarm signals from spot-type smoke detectors (ionization and photoelectric) are delayed when the threshold value has been achieved outside the detector housing as a result of convective transport of smoke through the detect ...

42. Survey of Fire Detection Technologies and System Evaluation/Certification Methodologies and Their Suitablity for Aircraft Cargo Compartments (NISTIR 6356)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6356
Published: 7/1/1999
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, William L Grosshandler
Abstract: As part of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) initiated program on global civil aviation, NIST is assisting the Federal Aviation Administration in its research to improve fire detection in aircraft cargo compartments. Improved ...

43. Dispersed Liquid Agent Fire Suppression Screen Apparatus
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6319
Published: 7/1/1999
Authors: Jiann C Yang, Michelle K Donnelly, William L Grosshandler, N C Prive
Abstract: The design, construction, demonstraion and operation of a bench-scale device capable of screening the fire suppression efficiency of liquid agents are described in detail in this report. The apparatus is based on a well-characterized flame, a means t ...

44. Evaluating Multi-Sensor Fire Detectors in the Fire Emulator/Detector Evaluator
Published: 6/29/1999
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, Michael D. Anderson, Jason D Averill, William L Grosshandler
Abstract: NIST has developed the Fire Emulator/Detector Evaluator (FE/DE) for the purpose of testing detectors in a controlled environment. The FE/DE is a flow tunnel where fire or nuisance source characteristics can be controlled so that a detector placed in ...

45. On the Design of an Apparatus for Screening Liquid Fire Suppressants
Published: 6/29/1999
Authors: Jiann C Yang, Michelle K Donnelly, N C Prive, William L Grosshandler
Abstract: This paper discusses the design and use of an apparatus for evaluating the effectiveness of liquid fire suppression agents as possible replacements for halon 1301. The apparatus consists of a porous cylindrical burner located in the test section of a ...

46. Vapor Nucleation in a Cryogenic Fluid/Dissolved Nitrogen Mixture During Rapid Depressurization
Published: 5/1/1999
Authors: J C Yang, T G Cleary, Marcia L Huber, William L Grosshandler

47. Recent Results from the Dispersed liquid Agent Fire Suppression Screen
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 984-4
Published: 4/27/1999
Authors: Jiann C Yang, Michelle K Donnelly, William L Grosshandler, N C Prive
Abstract: Mosl or the current methods for fire suppression efficiency screening (e.2.. cup burners) are designed for evaluating gaseous fire suppression agents. Potential uses of liquid agents as halon replacements have been recently proposed in several appl ...

48. Suppressant Performance Evaluation in a Baffle-Stabilized Pool Fire
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 984-4
Published: 4/27/1999
Authors: William L Grosshandler, S R. Charagundla, Michelle K Donnelly, Cary Presser

49. Smoke Detector Response to Nuisance Aerosols
Published: 3/16/1999
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, William L Grosshandler, Artur A Chernovsky
Abstract: The worth of a fire detector is determined as much by its ability not to respond to stimuli that are generated from non-threatening sources as to respond in a timely manner to an actual fire. Photo-electric and ionization smoke detectors react to a g ...

50. Fire Suppression Efficiency Screening Using a Counterflow Cylindrical Burner
Published: 3/15/1999
Authors: Jiann C Yang, Michelle K Donnelly, N C Prive, William L Grosshandler
Abstract: The design and validation of a counterflow cylindrical burner for fire suppression efficiency screening are described. The stability limits of the burner were mapped using various fuel (propane) and oxidizer (air) flows. The stability enveloped compa ...
