21. 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 ...

22. 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 ...

24. 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 ...

25. 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 ...

29. Estimating Temperatures in Compartment Fires
Topic: Fire Protection Technologies
Published: 12/31/2002
Authors: William D. Walton, Phillip H. Thomas
Abstract: The ability to predict temperattures developed in compartment fires is of great significance to the fire protection professional. There are many uses for the knowledge of compartment fire temperatures, including the prediction of (1) the onset of ha ...
