2. High Pressure Release and Dispersion of Hydrogen in a Partially Enclosed Compartment : Effect of Natural and Forced Ventilation
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Published: 9/2/2013
Authors: Kuldeep R Prasad, Thomas George Cleary, Jiann C Yang
Abstract: The study of compressed hydrogen release from high-pressure storage systems has practical application for hydrogen and fuel cell technologies. Such releases may occur either due to accidental damage to a storage tank or connecting piping, or due to ...

4. Helium Dispersion in an Attached Single-Car Residential Garage with and Without Vehicle
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1731
Published: 10/2/2012
Authors: William M Pitts, Jiann C Yang, Marco G Fernandez, Kuldeep R Prasad
Abstract: The dispersion and loss of helium inside a single-car residential garage attached to a single-family house was experimentally characterized by recording time-resolved helium concentrations at multiple locations in the garage and at a single locat ...

5. Motorcoach Tire Fires ‹ Passenger Compartment Penetration, Tenability, Mitigation, and Material Performance
Published: 9/27/2012
Authors: Erik L Johnsson, Jiann C Yang
Abstract: Full-scale fire experiments were conducted at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to investigate tire fire interactions with the passenger compartment of a motorcoach. A burner was designed to imitate the frictional heating o ...

6. Experimental Study on Tire Fire Penetration into a Motorcoach Passenger Compartment
Published: 9/13/2012
Authors: Erik L Johnsson, Jiann C Yang
Abstract: Two full-scale fire experiments were conducted to determine the mode of penetration of a tire fire into the passenger compartment of a motorcoach. A special burner was designed to imitate the frictional heating of hub and wheel metal caused by f ...
