11. Five Grand Challenges in Pedestrian and Evacuation Dynamics
Topic: Fire Protection Technologies
Published: 6/6/2011
Author: Jason D Averill
Abstract: This paper identifies five grand challenges in the multidisciplinary field of pedestrian and evacuation dynamics (PED). In order to maximize the ef-fectiveness of limited resources, the PED community would benefit greatly from a prioritized, consens ...

14. High Pressure Release and Dispersion of Hydrogen in a Partially Enclosed Compartment
Topic: Fire Protection Technologies
Published: 3/1/2011
Authors: Kuldeep R Prasad, Thomas George Cleary, William M Pitts, 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 direct ...

15. Clean agent suppression of energized electrical equipment fires
Topic: Fire Protection Technologies
Published: 1/3/2011
Author: Gregory T Linteris
Abstract: The NFPA 2001 standard on the use of clean agents for the suppression of fires arose from the phase-out of Halon 1301. Standard methods exists for specifying the amount of clean agent required for Class A and Class B fires, but the recommendation fo ...

19. Improved Understanding of Thermal Agent Fire Suppression Mechanisms from Detailed Chemical Kinetic Modeling with Idealized Surrogate Agents
Topic: Fire Protection Technologies
Published: 8/4/2008
Author: William M Pitts
Abstract: Fire suppression agents that derive their entire effectiveness from physical processes are known as thermal agents. Thermal agents operate by lowering the flame temperature through dilution, heat absorption, and thermal diffusion. Two aspects of thes ...

20. Impact of a Residential Sprinkler on the Heat Release Rate of a Christmas Tree Fire
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Topic: Fire Protection Technologies
Published: 5/1/2008
Author: Daniel Madrzykowski
Abstract: Although the number of Christmas tree fires is low, the fires carry a higher level of hazard than other fires that occur in a residential structure. This study, supported by the U. S. Fire Administration, has the following three objectives: 1) chara ...
