21. High Throughput Techniques for Fire Retardant Materials Development
Topic: Fire Protection Technologies
Published: 1/5/2010
Authors: Rick D Davis, Richard E. Lyon
Abstract: None was required. Here is the last paragraph of the introduction. In this chapter are examples of how we used HT to accelerate knowledge about polymer materials. The first case study describes the development and application of HT tools and meth ...

22. Rethinking Egress: A Vision for the Future
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1647
Topic: Fire Protection Technologies
Published: 11/30/2009
Authors: Jason D Averill, Richard D Peacock
Abstract: New technologies and research are redefining the state-of-the-art in building evacuation. The time is right to rethink the entire infrastructure of egress from buildings in light new opportunities to address the economic and life-safety issues. App ...

23. 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 ...

24. 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 ...

25. Using CFAST to Estimate the Efficiency of Filtering Particulates in a Building (NIST IR 7498)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7498
Topic: Fire Protection Technologies
Published: 4/30/2008
Authors: Walter William Jones, Richard D Peacock
Abstract: CFAST is a two-zone fire model used to calculate the evolving distribution of smoke, fire gases and temperature throughout compartments of a constructed facility during a fire. The modeling equations used in CFAST take the mathematical form of an ini ...

26. Benefit-Cost Analysis of Residential Fire Sprinkler Systems
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Topic: Fire Protection Technologies
Published: 9/2/2007
Authors: David T Butry, M H. Brown, S Fuller
Abstract: This report documents a benefit-cost analysis performed to measure the expected present value of net benefits resulting from the installation of a multipurpose network fire sprinkler system in a newly-constructed, single-family house. The benefits an ...

27. Measurements of Heat and Combustion Products in Reduced-Scale Ventilation-Limited Compartment Fires
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1483
Topic: Fire Protection Technologies
Published: 7/1/2007
Authors: Matthew F Bundy, Anthony P Hamins, Erik L Johnsson, Sung C. Kim, Gwon Ko, David B. Lenhert
Abstract: A series of new reduced-scale compartment fire experiments were conducted, which included local measurements of temperature and species composition. The measurements are unique to the compartment fire literature. By design, the experiments provided a ...

28. Transport of High Boiling-Point Fire Suppressants in a Droplet-Laden Homogeneous Turbulent Flow Past a Heated Cylinder
Topic: Fire Protection Technologies
Published: 12/1/2006
Authors: Cary Presser, C Avedisian
Abstract: Liquid agent transport was investigated around an unheated and heated cylinder (to a near-surface temperature of approximately 423 K) under ambient conditions. Experimental results are presented for a well-characterized, droplet-laden homogenous tur ...
