13. Aerosol and SPGG Technology Fire Suppression Screening Methods (NISTIR 5904)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5904
Published: 10/28/1996
Authors: William L Grosshandler, Jiann C Yang, Thomas George Cleary
Abstract: The search for alternatives to halons for fire suppression applications has identified not only new compounds which have physical properties similar to the bromochlorofluorocarbon family, but also inert gaseous agents that are released from a solid s ...

15. 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 ...
