51. 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 ...

52. 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 ...

53. 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 ...

54. 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 ...

55. 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 ...

56. 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 ...

57. 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 ...

58. Development of a High Flux Conduction Calibration Apparatus
Published: 12/31/1997
Authors: William L. Grosshandler, David L. Blackburn
http://www.nist.gov/manuscript-publication-search.cfm?pub_id=24758

59. Fire Suppression Efficiency Screening Method
Published: 12/3/1997
Authors: Jiann C Yang, Michelle K Donnelly, William L. Grosshandler
Abstract: Most of the current methods for fire suppression efficiency screening (e.g., cup burners) are designed for screening agents that can be delivered in the form of vapor. The search for alternatives to halons for fire suppression applications has identi ...

60. Evaporation of a Small Water Droplet Containing an Additive
Published: 8/1/1997
Authors: M D King, Jiann C Yang, W. S. Chien, William L. Grosshandler
Abstract: An experimental study on the evaporation of a small water droplet containing an additive on a heated, polished stainless-steel surface was performed. Solutions of water containing 30% (w/w) and 60% (w/w) of potassium acetate and sodium iodide were us ...
