83. Suppression of Fires Exposed to an External Radiant Flux
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6827
Published: 12/1/2001
Authors: Michelle K Donnelly, William L. Grosshandler
Abstract: When materials are burning in the presence of a continuous, external energy source, they are often more difficult to extinguish and may require an increase in suppression agent to extinguish the fire. This situation could exist for class C fires inv ...

84. Suppression of Simulated Engine Nacelle Fires (NISTIR 5499)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5499
Published: 10/17/1994
Authors: Anthony P Hamins, D. Baghdadi, P. Borthwick, M Glover, William L. Grosshandler, D L Lowe, L Melton, Cary Presser
Abstract: The engine nacelle encases the jet engine compressor, combustor and turbine. A nacelle fire is typically a turbulent diffusion flame stabilized behind an obstruction in a moderately high speed air flow. The most likely source for a fire in the nacell ...

88. The International Forum of Fire Research Directors: A Position Paper on Evaluation of Structural Fire Resistance
Published: Date unknown
Author: William L. Grosshandler
Abstract: The structural integrity of a building, and the safety of building occupants and first responders in an actual fire, will depend upon the quality of the structural design, the design of the active and passive fire protection and egress systems, and t ...

Report Number: 6242
Published: 10/1/1998
Authors: William L. Grosshandler, Anthony P Hamins, Kevin B McGrattan, Cary Presser
Abstract: The amount of a gaseous agent required to extinguish fires in full-scale engine nacelle tests varies greatly with the geometry of the fixture and the manner in which the flame is stabilized. It has been observed that if the test is designed to allow ...
