51. Design and Uncertainty Analysis of a Second-Generation Convective Heat Flux Calibration Facility
Series: OTHER
Published: 1/1/1999
Authors: David G Holmberg, C A. Womeldorf, William L Grosshandler
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards nad Technology has developed a convective heat flux facility to allow calibration of heat flux sensors. The facility consists of a small wind tunnel that produces a two-dimensional laminar boundary layer across a h ...

52. Vapor Nucleation in a Cryogenic-Fluid-Dissovled-Nitrogen Mixture During Rapid Depressurization
Published: 1/1/1999
Authors: Jiann C Yang, Thomas George Cleary, Marcia L Huber, William L Grosshandler
Abstract: The behaviour of four cryogenic-fluid-dissolved-nitrogen mixtures inside a pressure vessel during rapid depressurization was investigated through experiment. The four fluids studied were CF3I, FC-218 (C3F8), HFC-125 (C2HF5), and CF3Br. Depressurizati ...

53. Evaluation of Fire Detection Technology for Suitability in Aircraft Cargo Compartments
Report Number: 6242
Published: 11/2/1998
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, William L Grosshandler
Abstract: NIST is assisting the FAA in its research to improve fire detection in Class C and D aircraft cargo compartments. Class C and D compartments are inaccessible in flight. Class C compartments are required to have detection and suppression systems inst ...

54. Clean Agent Performance on Fires Exposed to an External Energy Source.
Published: 11/2/1998
Authors: Kenneth David Steckler, William L Grosshandler, Daniel C Smith-Tone, P Rivers
Abstract: Work carried out over the last several years has shown that there can be a significant increase in the amount of agent required to extinguish and to prevent re-ignition of fires that are exposed to a continuous, external, energy source. This has impl ...

55. Fire-Emulator Detector-Evaluation
Published: 10/28/1998
Authors: Artur A Chernovsky, William L Grosshandler, Thomas George Cleary, Michael D. Anderson
Abstract: The performance of a fire detection system is determined as much by its ability to recognize correctly the non-fire state as to sense the presence of a real fire. Common fire detectors respond to particulate matter in the form of smoke from a flaming ...

56. Evaluation of Fire Detection Technology for Suitability in Aircraft Cargo Compartments (NISTIR 6242)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6242
Published: 10/1/1998
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, William L Grosshandler
Abstract: NIST is assisting the FAA in its research to improve fire detection in Class C and D aircraft cargo compartments. Class C and D compartments are inaccessible in flight. Class C compartments are required to have detection and suppression systems inst ...

57. Dispersed Liquid Agent Fire Suppression Screening Method (NISTIR 6242)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6242
Published: 10/1/1998
Authors: Jiann C Yang, Michelle K Donnelly, N C Prive, William L Grosshandler
Abstract: The recent ban on halon 1301 production (as a result of its ozone depleting potential) has resulted in an extensive search for replacements and alternatives. The applications of fire suppression efficiency screening methods constitute an important as ...

58. Particulate Entry Lag in Smoke Detectors (NISTIR 6242)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6242
Published: 10/1/1998
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, Artur A Chernovsky, William L Grosshandler, Michael D. Anderson
Abstract: It is well known that smoke detectors do not instantaneously respond to smoke concentration directly outside the detector. The smoke must be transported through the detector housing to a sensing location inside the detector. The sensing time lag is a ...

59. Transient Agent, Recirculating Pool Fire (TARPF) Suppression Screen (NISTIR 6242)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6242
Published: 10/1/1998
Authors: William L Grosshandler, Anthony P Hamins, Kevin B McGrattan, Cary Presser
Abstract: The amount of a gaseous agent required to extinguish fires in full-scale engine nacelle tests varies greatly with the geometry of the fixture and the manner in which the flame is stabilized. It has been observed that if the test is designed to allow ...

60. An Apparatus for Evaluating Liquid Fire Suppressants
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 984-4
Published: 5/12/1998
Authors: Jiann C Yang, Michelle K Donnelly, William L Grosshandler, N C Prive
Abstract: Cup burners have been extensively used as a fire suppression efficiency screening tool for gaseous halon alternatives. In the search for alternatives to halons in fire suppression, it is likely that several types of condensed-phase compounds will be ...
