71. Report of the Technical Investigation of The Station Nightclub Fire: Appendices (NIST NCSTAR 2), Volume 2
Series: National Construction Safety Team Act Reports (NIST NCSTAR)
Report Number: 2
Published: 6/30/2005
Authors: William L Grosshandler, Nelson P Bryner, Daniel M. Madrzykowski, K Kuntz
Abstract: A fire occurred on the night of Feb. 20, 2003, in The Station nightclub at 211 Cowesett Avenue, West Warwick, Rhode Island. A band that was on the platform that night, during its performance, used pyrotechnics that ignited polyurethane foam insulatio ...

72. Research & Development Program for the Safety of Threatened Buildings
Published: Date unknown
Author: William L Grosshandler
Abstract: A series of tragic events in the United States over the past decade, punctuated by the collapse of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, has exposed the vulnerability of public buildings to uncontrolled fires, explosions, and biological attac ...

73. Research Agenda for the Next Generation of Performance-Based Design Tools.
Published: 9/1/2007
Author: William L Grosshandler

Series: OTHER
Published: 1/1/1995
Authors: C A. Womeldorf, William L Grosshandler, M Mitchell
Abstract: This paper describes the selection of a simulant of CF3Br for the purpose of certification testing engine nacelles fire suppression systems. In order to illustrate the storage, delivery, and distribution requirements of CF3Br, relevant characterist ...

75. Setting the Standard for Competing Globally: International Standards,Codes and Practices
Published: 10/21/2010
Author: William L Grosshandler
Abstract: The BFRL International Standards Workshop was held on June 29 and 30, 2009 to identify opportunities for standards development organizations and U.S. industry to optimize their global competitiveness through standards, codes, and practices. For the f ...

76. Simple Piezoelectric Droplet Generator
Published: 1/1/1997
Authors: Jiann C Yang, W. S. Chien, M D King, William L Grosshandler
Abstract: A design for a piezoelectric on-demand droplet generator is presented. Its simple construction and ease of operation distinguish this generator from other previously reported. The droplet generator has been successfully used to produce droplets of aq ...

77. Simulation of Dry Bay Discharge of Alternative Agents
Series: OTHER
Published: 1/1/1994
Authors: Jiann C Yang, Thomas George Cleary, William L Grosshandler
Abstract: As a continuation of the USAF/Navy/Amy/FAA sponsored halon replacement project, the discharge characteristics of the three selected akernative agents (CFJ, FC-218. and HFC- 125) for dry bay applications will be further evaluated. Halon 1301 will al ...

78. Smoke Detector Response to Nuisance Aerosols
Published: 3/16/1999
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, William L Grosshandler, Artur A Chernovsky
Abstract: The worth of a fire detector is determined as much by its ability not to respond to stimuli that are generated from non-threatening sources as to respond in a timely manner to an actual fire. Photo-electric and ionization smoke detectors react to a g ...

79. Solid Propellant Gas Generators: An Overview and Their Application to Fire Suppression (NISTIR 5766)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5766
Published: 6/28/1995
Authors: Jiann C Yang, William L Grosshandler
Abstract: A solid propellant gas generator is essentially an airbag inflator without a bag. That is, the gas generated is discharged directly into ambience rather than into a bag. A typical solid propellant gas generator consists of solid propellant tablets wh ...

80. Solid Propellant Gas Generators: Proceedings of the 1995 Workshop (NISTIR 5766)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5766
Published: 11/1/1995
Authors: Jiann C Yang, William L Grosshandler
Abstract: A workshop on solid propellant gas generators was held on June 28-29, 1995 at the National Institute of Standards and Technology under the sponsorship of the Building and Fire Research Laboratory. Gas generator technology was first proposed as altern ...
