91. Summary and Recommendations (NIST SP 861)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 861
Published: 4/1/1994
Authors: William L Grosshandler, Richard George Gann, William M Pitts
Abstract: The main objective of this research program was to provide guidance to the sponsors on which materials to evaluate in the full-scale fire suppression test plan at Wright-Patterson AFB. Specifically, the recommendations were to include the following: ...

92. Flow of Alternative Agents in Piping
Published: 1/1/1994
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, William L Grosshandler, Jiann C Yang
Abstract: As part of the USAF, Army, Navy and FAA sponsored halon replacement project, the pipe flow characteristics of selected alternative agents for engine nacelle tire protection are being studied. Due to the remote location of the agent storage bottle, ...

93. Simulation of Dry Bay Discharge of Alternative Agents
Series: OTHER
Published: 1/1/1994
Authors: Jiann C Yang, Thomas George Cleary, William L Grosshandler
Abstract: As a continuation of the USAF/Navy/Amy/FAA sponsored halon replacement project, the discharge characteristics of the three selected akernative agents (CFJ, FC-218. and HFC- 125) for dry bay applications will be further evaluated. Halon 1301 will al ...

94. Agent Screening for Halon 1301 Aviation Replacement
Published: 10/20/1993
Authors: William L Grosshandler, Richard George Gann, Anthony P Hamins, Marc R. Nyden, William M Pitts, Jiann C Yang, Michael Russel Zachariah
Abstract: A comprehensive experimental program is described in which eleven gaseous agents and sodium bicarbonate powder have been screened, so that the best three candidates for subsequent full-scale aircraft fire extinguishment evaluation can be identified. ...

95. Application of FTIR Remote Sensing Spectroscopy in Environmental Impact Assessments of Oil Fires
Published: 10/11/1993
Authors: Marc R. Nyden, William L Grosshandler, Darren Lowe, Richard H. Harris Jr., E Braun
Abstract: A series of laboratory measurements was conducted to determine the extent to which benzene and other aromatic components are destroyed when crude oil is burned on the open seas. The atmosphere above a pan containing Alaskan North Slope crude oil was ...

96. Solubilities of Nitrogen and Freon-23 in Alternative Halon Replacement Agents
Published: 5/11/1993
Authors: Jiann C Yang, B D Breuel, William L Grosshandler
Abstract: As part of the USAF-sponsored halon replacement project, solubility measurements of nitrogen and Freon-23 in eleven potential halon replacement agents and evaluations of the thermodynamic properties of the agents are currently being conducted at NIST ...

97. Acoustic Emission of Structural Materials Exposed to Open Flames
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 4984
Published: 12/1/1992
Authors: William L Grosshandler, M A Jackson
Abstract: The use of acoustic emission (AE) as an early indicator of structural materials exposed to a flame has been investigated and found to be possible. Piezoelectric transducers have been mounted directly on 0.5 m long, simply supported beams of aluminum, ...
