71. Signatures of Smoldering/Pyrolyzing Fires for Multi-Element Detector Evaluation
Published: 3/26/1996
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, William L Grosshandler, Marc R. Nyden, William J. Rinkinen
Abstract: Levels of CO, CO2, H2O, hydrocarbons, smoke, temperature and velocity produced in the plumes of smoldering/pyrolyzing wood and smoldering cotton fires are reported, following test protocols described for evaluating automatic fire detection systems. ...

72. Rapid Discharge of a Fire Suppressing Agent
Published: 1/1/1996
Authors: Jiann C Yang, William M Pitts, B D Breuel, William L Grosshandler, W G Cleveland
Abstract: This paper describes an experimental method to study the rapid discharge of a fire suppressant (C3F8) from a pressurized vessel. Experimental observations inside and at the exit of the vessel were made using high-speed photography. Boiling was not ob ...

73. Optimization of System Discharge (NIST SP 890)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 890
Published: 11/1/1995
Authors: Jiann C Yang, Thomas George Cleary, I Vazquez, C I Boyer, M D King, B D Breuel, C A. Womeldorf, William L Grosshandler, Marcia L Huber, L Weber, G. Gmurczyk
Abstract: Current aircraft fire suppression bottles for dry bay and engine nacelle applications, which are designed to meet Military Specification MIL-C-22284A (proof pressure of 9.62 MPa and minimum burst pressure of 12.37 MPa), are normally filled with liqui ...

74. Solid Propellant Gas Generators: Proceedings of the 1995 Workshop (NISTIR 5766)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5766
Published: 11/1/1995
Authors: Jiann C Yang, William L Grosshandler
Abstract: A workshop on solid propellant gas generators was held on June 28-29, 1995 at the National Institute of Standards and Technology under the sponsorship of the Building and Fire Research Laboratory. Gas generator technology was first proposed as altern ...

75. Suppression of Engine Nacelle Fires (NIST SP 890)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 890
Published: 11/1/1995
Authors: Anthony P Hamins, Thomas George Cleary, P. Borthwick, N Gorchkov, Kevin B McGrattan, Glenn P Forney, William L Grosshandler, Cary Presser, L Melton
Abstract: A series of experimental measurements were conducted and simple models were developed in an effort to provide an improved understanding of the influence of various parameters on the processes controlling flame stability in engine nacelle applications ...

76. Solid Propellant Gas Generators: An Overview and Their Application to Fire Suppression (NISTIR 5766)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5766
Published: 6/28/1995
Authors: Jiann C Yang, William L Grosshandler
Abstract: A solid propellant gas generator is essentially an airbag inflator without a bag. That is, the gas generated is discharged directly into ambience rather than into a bag. A typical solid propellant gas generator consists of solid propellant tablets wh ...

77. Assessing Halon Alternatives for Aircraft Engine Nacelle Fire Suppression.
Published: 5/1/1995
Authors: William L Grosshandler, Cary Presser, Daniel Lee Lowe, William J. Rinkinen
Abstract: A coaxial turbulent spray burner was built to evaluate the relative effectiveness of different chemicals for suppressing fires in a jet engine nacelle. The fire suppressant of current choice, halon 1301 (CF3Br), must be replaced because of its detrim ...

78. Pipe Flow Characteristics of Alternative Agents for Engine Nacelle Fire Protection
Series: OTHER
Published: 1/1/1995
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, Jiann C Yang, William L Grosshandler, Michelle King, C I Boyer
Abstract: As part of the U.S. Air Force, Army, Navy and FAA Halon Replacement Project at NIST, the pipe flow characteristics were investigated for three engine nacelle alternative candidates: HFC-227ea, HFC-125 and CF31. The flow regime in suppression system ...

Series: OTHER
Published: 1/1/1995
Authors: C A. Womeldorf, William L Grosshandler, M Mitchell
Abstract: This paper describes the selection of a simulant of CF3Br for the purpose of certification testing engine nacelles fire suppression systems. In order to illustrate the storage, delivery, and distribution requirements of CF3Br, relevant characterist ...

80. Suppression of Simulated Engine Nacelle Fires (NISTIR 5499)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5499
Published: 10/17/1994
Authors: Anthony P Hamins, D. Baghdadi, P. Borthwick, M Glover, William L Grosshandler, D L Lowe, L Melton, Cary Presser
Abstract: The engine nacelle encases the jet engine compressor, combustor and turbine. A nacelle fire is typically a turbulent diffusion flame stabilized behind an obstruction in a moderately high speed air flow. The most likely source for a fire in the nacell ...
