1. CFAST -- Consolidated Fire and Smoke Transport (Version 7) Volume 4: Configuration Management
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Published: 12/15/2015
Author: Richard D Peacock
Abstract: The purpose of this document is to describe the policies and procedures for developing and maintaining CFAST. Such a document is commonly referred to as a {\em Configuration Management Plan}. Description of the theoretical basis of the model, instr ...

2. CFAST ‹ Consolidated Model of Fire Growth and Smoke Transport (Version 7) Volume 1: Technical Reference Guide
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Published: 12/15/2015
Authors: Richard D Peacock, Kevin B McGrattan, Glenn P Forney, Paul A Reneke
Abstract: CFAST is a two-zone fire model capable of predicting the environment in a multi-compartment structure subjected to a fire. It calculates the time evolving distribution of smoke and fire gases and the temperature throughout a building during a user- ...

6. A Review of Risk Perception in Building Fire Evacuation
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1840
Published: 10/1/2014
Authors: Max T. Kinateder, Erica D Kuligowski, Paul A Reneke, Richard D Peacock
Abstract: Risk perception (RP) is studied in many research disciplines (e.g., safety engineering, psychology, or sociology), and the contexts surrounding the ways in which different concepts of RP are applied vary greatly. Definitions of RP can be broadly di ...

7. A Review of Risk Perception in Building Fire Evacuation
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1840
Published: 9/25/2014
Authors: Max Kinateder, Erica D Kuligowski, Paul A Reneke, Richard D Peacock
Abstract: Risk perception (RP) is studied in many research disciplines (e.g., safety engineering, psychology, and sociology), and the context in which RP is studied varies greatly. Definitions of RP can be broadly divided into expectancy- value and risk-a ...

8. Movement on Stairs During Building Evacuations
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1839
Published: 9/25/2014
Authors: Erica D Kuligowski, Richard D Peacock, Paul A Reneke, Emily A. Wiess, Jason D Averill, Robert Charles Hagwood, Enrico Ronchi, Bryan Hoskins, Michael Spearpoint
Abstract: The time that it takes an occupant population to reach safety when descending a stairwell during building evacuations is typically described by measureable engineering variables such as stairwell geometry, speed, density, and pre-evacuation delay ...

9. Assessing the Verification and Validation of Building Fire Evacuation Models
Published: 9/19/2014
Authors: Enrico Ronchi, Erica D Kuligowski, Daniel Nilsson, Richard D Peacock, Paul A Reneke
Abstract: To date there is no International standard on the verification and validation (V&V) of building fire evacuation models, i.e., model testers adopt inconsistent procedures or tests designed for other model uses. For instance, the tests presented with ...
