21. 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 ...

22. 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 ...

23. Clean Agent Performance on Fires Exposed to an External Energy Source.
Published: 11/2/1998
Authors: Kenneth David Steckler, William L Grosshandler, Daniel C Smith-Tone, P Rivers
Abstract: Work carried out over the last several years has shown that there can be a significant increase in the amount of agent required to extinguish and to prevent re-ignition of fires that are exposed to a continuous, external, energy source. This has impl ...

24. 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 ...

25. 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 ...

26. 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 ...

27. Development of a High Flux Conduction Calibration Apparatus
Published: 12/31/1997
Authors: William L Grosshandler, David L. Blackburn

28. 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 ...

29. 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 ...

30. 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 ...
