33. Fire Resistance Determination & Performance Prediction Research Needs Workshop: Proceedings
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6890
Published: 9/1/2002
Author: William L. Grosshandler
Abstract: The Building and Fire Research Laboratory initiated a program prior to the events of September 11, 2001, to put structural fire protection on a stronger scientific footing. The catastrophic collapses of the World Trade Center underscored the need to ...

34. Fire Spread Through a Room With Polyurethane Foam Covered Walls
Published: 12/1/2004
Authors: Daniel Madrzykowski, Nelson P Bryner, William L. Grosshandler, D W. Stroup
Abstract: As part of its technical investigation of the fire that occurred in a Rhode Island, USA nightclub in February, 2003, NIST has conducted real-scale experiments to better understand the rate at which fire spreads over foam covered walls and the environ ...

35. Fire Suppression Efficiency Screening Method
Published: 12/3/1997
Authors: Jiann C Yang, Michelle K Donnelly, William L. Grosshandler
Abstract: Most of the current methods for fire suppression efficiency screening (e.g., cup burners) are designed for screening agents that can be delivered in the form of vapor. The search for alternatives to halons for fire suppression applications has identi ...

36. Fire Suppression Efficiency Screening Using a Counterflow Cylindrical Burner
Published: 3/15/1999
Authors: Jiann C Yang, Michelle K Donnelly, N C Prive, William L. Grosshandler
Abstract: The design and validation of a counterflow cylindrical burner for fire suppression efficiency screening are described. The stability limits of the burner were mapped using various fuel (propane) and oxidizer (air) flows. The stability enveloped compa ...

37. Fire-Emulator Detector-Evaluation
Published: 10/28/1998
Authors: Artur A Chernovsky, William L. Grosshandler, Thomas George Cleary, Michael D. Anderson
Abstract: The performance of a fire detection system is determined as much by its ability to recognize correctly the non-fire state as to sense the presence of a real fire. Common fire detectors respond to particulate matter in the form of smoke from a flaming ...

38. Flame Suppression Effectiveness (NIST SP 861)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 861
Published: 4/1/1994
Authors: Anthony P Hamins, G. Gmurczyk, William L. Grosshandler, R. G. Rehwoldt, I Vazquez, Thomas George Cleary, Cary Presser, K Seshadri
Abstract: A flame will be extinguished when the time required for the chain reaction which sustains combustion exceeds the time it takes to replenish the necessary heat and reactants. A characteristic time for reaction can be estimated from the inverse of a gl ...

39. 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 ...

40. Flow of Alternative Agents in Piping
Published: 1/1/1994
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, William L. Grosshandler, Jiann C Yang
Abstract: As part of the USAF, Army, Navy and FAA sponsored halon replacement project, the pipe flow characteristics of selected alternative agents for engine nacelle tire protection are being studied. Due to the remote location of the agent storage bottle, ...
