61. Particulate Entry Lag in Spot-Type Smoke Detectors
Published: 7/5/1999
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, Artur A Chernovsky, William L Grosshandler, Michael D. Anderson
Abstract: It is well documented that alarm signals from spot-type smoke detectors (ionization and photoelectric) are delayed when the threshold value has been achieved outside the detector housing as a result of convective transport of smoke through the detect ...

62. Pipe Flow Characteristics of Alternative Agent/Nitrogen Mixtures (NISTIR 5499)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5499
Published: 9/1/1994
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, M D King, Jiann C Yang, William L Grosshandler
Abstract: The evaluation of alternative agents for application in engine nacelle fire protection includes delivery efficiency of agent from a remote storge bottle through piping to the nacelle injection loacation. Present military requirements for halon system ...

63. Pipe Flow Characteristics of Alternative Agents for Engine Nacelle Fire Protection
Series: OTHER
Published: 1/1/1995
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, Jiann C Yang, William L Grosshandler, Michelle King, C I Boyer
Abstract: As part of the U.S. Air Force, Army, Navy and FAA Halon Replacement Project at NIST, the pipe flow characteristics were investigated for three engine nacelle alternative candidates: HFC-227ea, HFC-125 and CF31. The flow regime in suppression system ...

64. Rapid Discharge of a Fire Suppressing Agent
Published: 1/1/1996
Authors: Jiann C Yang, William M Pitts, B D Breuel, William L Grosshandler, W G Cleveland
Abstract: This paper describes an experimental method to study the rapid discharge of a fire suppressant (C3F8) from a pressurized vessel. Experimental observations inside and at the exit of the vessel were made using high-speed photography. Boiling was not ob ...

66. Recent Results from the Dispersed liquid Agent Fire Suppression Screen
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 984-4
Published: 4/27/1999
Authors: Jiann C Yang, Michelle K Donnelly, William L Grosshandler, N C Prive
Abstract: Mosl or the current methods for fire suppression efficiency screening (e.2.. cup burners) are designed for evaluating gaseous fire suppression agents. Potential uses of liquid agents as halon replacements have been recently proposed in several appl ...
