12. 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 ...

14. 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 ...

15. 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 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 ...

16. 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 ...

17. 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 ...
