11. Finite-element models of the National Fire Research Laboratory (NFRL)and modular support structure
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7886
Topic: Fire Protection Technologies
Published: 10/26/2012
Author: Dat Duthinh
Abstract: This report documents the development of finite-element models (FEM) of the National Fire Research Laboratory (NFRL) and its modular support structure. The models enable a future user of the NFRL to add a potential test structure and perform thermal ...

12. Fire Dynamics Simulator, Technical Reference Guide, Sixth Edition
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1018
Topic: Fire Protection Technologies
Published: 11/4/2013
Authors: Kevin B McGrattan, Randall Joseph McDermott, Craig G. Weinschenk, Glenn P Forney
Abstract: This document provides the theoretical basis for the Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS), following the general framework set forth in the ,Standard Guide for Evaluating the Predictive Capability of Deterministic Fire Models,Š ASTM E 1355. It is a four v ...

13. 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 ...

14. Report of the Technical Investigation of The Station Nightclub Fire (NIST NCSTAR 2) ***DRAFT for Public Comments***
Series: National Construction Safety Team Act Reports (NIST NCSTAR)
Report Number: 2
Topic: Fire Protection Technologies
Published: 3/30/2005
Authors: William L Grosshandler, Nelson P Bryner, Daniel M. Madrzykowski, K Kuntz
Abstract: A fire occurred on the night of Feb. 20, 2003, in The Station nightclub at 211 Cowesett Avenue, West Warwick, Rhode Island. A band that was on the platform that night, during its performance, used pyrotechnics that ignited polyurethane foam insulatio ...

15. Risk-Informed Performance-Based Design Concepts and Framework
Series: Grant/Contract Reports (NISTGCR)
Topic: Fire Protection Technologies
Published: 3/31/2015
Authors: Brian J Meacham, Alberto Alvarez-Rodriguez
Abstract: A new framework for a risk-informed performance-based approach to fire safety analysis and design has been proposed. It is structured around a paradigm in which the performance analysis is conducted relative to the performance of a building-occupan ...

16. Simulation of the Dynamics of the Fire at 3146 Cherry Road NE Washington D.C., May 30, 1999 (NISTIR 6510)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6510
Topic: Fire Protection Technologies
Published: 4/30/2000
Authors: Daniel M. Madrzykowski, R Vettori
Abstract: This report describes the results of calculations using the NIST Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS) that were performed to provide insight on the thermal conditions that may have occurred during the fire at 3146 Cherry Road NE, Washington D.C. on May 30, ...

17. Stair Evacuation of People with Mobility Impairments
Topic: Fire Protection Technologies
Published: 3/3/2014
Authors: Erica D Kuligowski, Richard D Peacock, Bryan Hoskins, Emily Wiess
Abstract: The time that it takes a population to reach safety when descending a stairwell during building evacuations is typically described by measureable engineering variables. These engineering variables include stairwell geometry, speed, density, and p ...

18. Strategic Roadmap for Fire Risk Reduction in Buildings and Communities
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1130
Topic: Fire Protection Technologies
Published: 4/18/2012
Authors: Anthony P Hamins, Jason D Averill, Richard George Gann, Nelson P Bryner, Rick D Davis, David T Butry, Alexander Maranghides, Jiann C Yang, Daniel M. Madrzykowski, Matthew F Bundy, Samuel L Manzello, Jeffrey W Gilman, Francine K. Amon, William E. Mell
Abstract: The burden of fire on the U.S. economy continues to be large, comprising approximately $280 billion annually, or 2 percent of GDP. Over the last 30 years, civilian fire deaths and injuries have decreased due to the efforts of many people and org ...

19. 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 ...

20. 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 ...
