22. Dispersed Liquid Agent Fire Suppression Screen Apparatus
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6319
Published: 7/1/1999
Authors: Jiann C Yang, Michelle K Donnelly, William L. Grosshandler, N C Prive
Abstract: The design, construction, demonstraion 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 apparatus is based on a well-characterized flame, a means t ...

23. Dispersed Liquid Agent Fire Suppression Screening Method (NISTIR 6242)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6242
Published: 10/1/1998
Authors: Jiann C Yang, Michelle K Donnelly, N C Prive, William L. Grosshandler
Abstract: The recent ban on halon 1301 production (as a result of its ozone depleting potential) has resulted in an extensive search for replacements and alternatives. The applications of fire suppression efficiency screening methods constitute an important as ...

24. Equivalency of the Rankings of Inhibitor Effectiveness for Combustion of Hydrocarbon Fuels
Published: Date unknown
Authors: Valeri Ivan Babushok, Wing Tsang, William L. Grosshandler
Abstract: The search for alternatives to halon 1301 has involved numerous flame studies, with the effectiveness of different agents compared using a range of gaseous and liquid fuels. Methane is the most convenient fuel for investigating the inhibition and ex ...

25. Evaluation of Alternative In-Flight Fire Suppressants for Full-Scale Testing in Simulated Aircraft Engine Nacelles and Dry Bays (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
http://www.nist.gov/manuscript-publication-search.cfm?pub_id=911642

26. Evaporation of a Small Aqueous Suppressing Agent Droplet (NISTIR 5904)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5904
Published: 10/1/1996
Authors: W. S. Chien, Jiann C Yang, M D King, William L. Grosshandler
Abstract: Due to its ozone-depleting potential, halon 1301 (CF3Br) has been banned from production under the Montreal Protocol. The research for halon replacement(s) has led to the reconsideration of using water in certain applications. However, under cold sto ...

27. Evaporation of a Small Water Droplet Containing an Additive
Published: 8/1/1997
Authors: M D King, Jiann C Yang, W. S. Chien, William L. Grosshandler
Abstract: An experimental study on the evaporation of a small water droplet containing an additive on a heated, polished stainless-steel surface was performed. Solutions of water containing 30% (w/w) and 60% (w/w) of potassium acetate and sodium iodide were us ...

28. Executive Summary (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: Bromotrifluoromethane (halon 1301 or CF3Br) has been the fire-fighting agent of choice for decades to protect inaccessible spaces aboard aircraft in flight because of its inherent ability to inhibit combustion while possessing a high liquid density a ...

29. 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 ...

30. Facility for Calibrating Heat Flu Sensors in a Convective Environment
Series: OTHER
Published: 1/1/1997
Authors: David G Holmberg, Kenneth David Steckler, C A. Womeldorf, William L. Grosshandler
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) presently conducts heat flux sensor calibrations using standard radiation methods. In practice, however, many heat flux sensors are used in test environments where convective heat transfer dom ...
