11. 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 ...

12. 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. ...

13. 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 ...

14. Apparatus for Screening Fire Suppression Efficiency of Dispersed Liquid Agents.
Published: 1/1/2001
Authors: Jiann C Yang, Michelle K Donnelly, N C Prive, William L. Grosshandler
Abstract: This paper is an abridged version of NISTIR 6319. The design, construction, demonstration, and operation of a bench-scale device capable of screening the fire suppression efficiency of liquid agents are described in detail in this report. The apparat ...

15. 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 L 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 ...

16. Approach to Modeling Flame Spread Over Polyurethane Foam-Covered Walls. (POSTER ABSTRACTS)
Published: 9/1/2005
Authors: Daniel Madrzykowski, Stephen Kerber, Nelson P Bryner, William L. Grosshandler
Abstract: Computer simulation has been demonstrated to be credible, when properly applied, as a tool to help fill in critical details of a fire incident and to demonstrate the value of alternative building designs and fire safety measures. This poster presents ...

17. Building and Fire Research Laboratory Activities, Accomplishments, and Recognitions, 2010
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 838-20
Published: 1/25/2010
Authors: Kellie Ann Beall, William L. Grosshandler, Sivaraj Shyam-Sunder
Abstract: BFRL is involved in a wide range of scientific, engineering, and investigative work for the building and fire safety communities. We address technical challenges in response to critical national needs, with a particular mission focus on measurement s ...

18. Combustion Research Studies at the National Institute of Standards and Technology
Published: 1/1/2000
Authors: Takashi Kashiwagi, William L. Grosshandler, Anthony P Hamins, William M Pitts, Cary Presser, Wing Tsang
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is a federal agency within the Technology Administration of the Department of Commerce. NIST's primary mission is to develop and apply technology, measurements, and standards to promote econom ...

19. Computer Simulation of the Liquid Agent Spray Motion and Evaporation
Published: 7/18/1994
Authors: G. Gmurczyk, Leonard Y. Cooper, William L. Grosshandler, William M Pitts
Abstract: The discharge of a liquid fire extinguishing agent stored in a pressurized vessel through an orifice generates a freely moving spray outside the vessel. The flow has been modeled as a two-phase, three-component, turbulent, compressible, dissipative f ...

20. Design and Uncertainty Analysis of a Second-Generation Convective Heat Flux Calibration Facility
Series: OTHER
Published: 1/1/1999
Authors: David G Holmberg, C A. Womeldorf, William L. Grosshandler
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards nad Technology has developed a convective heat flux facility to allow calibration of heat flux sensors. The facility consists of a small wind tunnel that produces a two-dimensional laminar boundary layer across a h ...
