73. 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 ...

74. 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 ...

75. SELECTION OF A SIMULANT OF CF3Br FOR USE IN ENGINE NACELLE CERTIFICATION TESTS
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 ...

76. 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 ...

77. Experimental Studies on Discharge of Alternative Agent/Nitrogen Mixtures in a Simulated Dry Bay (NISTIR 5499)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5499
Published: 9/1/1994
Authors: Jiann C Yang, Thomas George Cleary, Roy A McLane, William L. Grosshandler
Abstract: Discharge of the three selected alternative agents for aircraft dry bay fire protection has been conducted in a simulated dry bay (i.e., in an unconfined space). The three selected agents are CF3I, FC-218, and HFC-125. Halon 1301 is also included in ...

78. Flame Suppression Effectiveness of Halon Alternatives (NISTIR 5499)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5499
Published: 9/1/1994
Authors: William L. Grosshandler, Anthony P Hamins
Abstract: The elimination of new production of halon 1301 has forced the manufacturers, owners, and users of aircraft to search for an alternative. The program described here developed performance screens for candidate agents as a means to identify the best ch ...

79. Halon 1301 Surrogates for Engine Nacelle Fire Suppression System Certification (NISTIR 5499)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5499
Published: 9/1/1994
Authors: C A. Womeldorf, Jiann C Yang, William L. Grosshandler
Abstract: Until recently halon 1301 has been regularly discharged in Navy aircraft engine nacelles to certify that the fire suppression systems distribute the fire suppressant effectively. Halon 1301 can no longer be used in this manner because of its high ozo ...

Published: 9/1/1994
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, M D King, Jiann C Yang, William L. Grosshandler
Abstract: The evaluation of alternative agents for application in engine nacelle fire protection includes delivery efficiency of agent from a remote storge bottle through piping to the nacelle injection loacation. Present military requirements for halon system ...
