1. Cup-Burner Flame Structure and Extinguishment by C2HF5 in Microgravity
Published: 9/26/2012
Authors: Gregory T Linteris, Fumiaki Takahashi, Viswanath R Katta, Oliver Meier
Abstract: The effects of fire-extinguishing agent C2HF5 (pentafluoroethane, HFC-125) added to a coflowing airstream on the structure and extinguishing processes of microgravity cup-burner flames have been studied numerically. Propane and a propane-ethanol-wate ...

2. Combustion Properties of Halogenated Fire Suppressants
Published: 8/1/2012
Authors: Gregory T Linteris, Valeri Ivan Babushok, Oliver Meier
Abstract: Previous experimental studies have shown that some halogenated fire suppressant agents added to hydrocarbon-air systems can enhance the combustion. For example, their addition to the air stream can widen the flammability limits of lean mixtures, and ...

3. Absorption and Reflection of Infrared Radiation by Polymers in Fire-Like Environments
Published: 7/17/2012
Authors: Gregory T Linteris, Mauro Zammarano, Boris Hannes Wilthan, Leonard M Hanssen
Abstract: In large-scale fires, the input of energy to burning materials occurs predominantly by radiative transfer. The in-depth absorption of radiant energy by a polymer influences its ignition time and burning rate. The present investigation examines two ...

4. Extinguishment of Cup Burner Flames of Propane and the Aerosol Can Simulator Fuel by CF3Br and C2HF5
Published: 4/24/2012
Authors: Gregory T Linteris, Fumiaki Takahashi, Viswanath R Katta, Oliver Meier
Abstract: Calculations have been performed for co-flow diffusion flames of propane and a propane-ethanol-water fuel mixture, prescribed for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Aerosol Can Simulator, in the cup-burner configuration, with added CF3Br and C ...

5. Prediction of the mass loss rate of polymer materials: Impact of residue formation
Published: 4/21/2012
Authors: Gregory T Linteris, Bernhard Schartel, Florian Kempel, Stanislav Stoliarov, Richard E. Lyon, Richard N Walters, Anja Hofmann
Abstract: Two different numerical simulation tools, Fire Dynamic Simulator (FDS) and ThermaKin, are investigated with respect to their capability to predict the mass loss rate of polymer materials exposed to different fires. For validation, gasification appa ...

6. Influence of Flame Characteristics on Gas-Phase Fire Retardant Effectiveness
Published: 3/16/2012
Author: Gregory T Linteris
Abstract: n/a

7. Understanding Unwanted Combustion Enhancement by Potential Halon Replacements
Published: 3/5/2012
Authors: Gregory T Linteris, Jeffrey A Manion, Donald R Burgess Jr
http://www.nist.gov/manuscript-publication-search.cfm?pub_id=908395

8. Annual Report to Sponsor: Understanding Unwanted Combustion Enhancement by Potential Halon Replacements
Series: OTHER
Published: 2/3/2012
Authors: Gregory T Linteris, Jeffrey A Manion, Donald R Burgess Jr, Iftikhar Ahmad Awan, Peter B. Sunderland, John Leonard Pagliaro
Abstract: This year, we continued work to numerically model the behavior of the Halon replacements in the FAA Aerosol Can Test (FAA-ACT) to understand why they are causing more overpressure rather than flame extinction. The goal is to understand the process t ...

9. Analysis of Suppressant-Enhanced Overpressure in the FAA Aerosol Can Simulator
Published: 1/18/2012
Authors: Gregory T Linteris, Donald R Burgess Jr, Jeffrey A Manion, Peter B. Sunderland, John Leonard Pagliaro, Viswanath R Katta, Fumiaki Takahashi, Oliver Meier
Abstract: n/a

10. Thermodynamic analysis of suppressant-enhanced overpressure in the FAA Aerosol Can Simulator
Published: 12/14/2011
Authors: Gregory T Linteris, Fumiaki Takahashi, Viswanath R Katta, Harsha K Chelliah
Abstract: Halon 1301 has been banned for most applications but it is still used in come critical applications for which suitable replacements have not yet been found. One such application is the suppression of cargo-bay fires in commercial aircraft. Recently ...
