12. Practical Considerations for Implementing Homeland Security Models & Simulations
Topic: Homeland Security and Disaster Resilience
Published: 12/1/2012
Authors: Charles W. Hutchings, Sanjay Jain, Yung-Tsun Tina Lee, Charles McLean
Abstract: Modeling and simulation (M&S) capabilities support reasoning in many domains and can provide powerful tools for homeland security analytical needs. For example, these capabilities are particularly valuable in exploring systems which are inaccessible ...

13. Finite-element models of the National Fire Research Laboratory (NFRL)and modular support structure
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7886
Topic: Homeland Security and Disaster Resilience
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 ...

14. Cross-sectional stability of structural steel at elevated temperatures
Topic: Homeland Security and Disaster Resilience
Published: 4/19/2012
Authors: Therese P McAllister, Mina Samir Seif
Abstract: There is a lack of understanding of how structural systems perform under realistic, uncontrolled fires. Current specifications for the design of steel structures in the US do not include fire effects as part of structural design. Instead, fire pr ...

15. The new and improved NIST Dragon‰s LAIR (Lofting and Ignition Research) Facility: Coupling the Reduced Scale Continuous Feed Firebrand Generator to Bench Scale Wind Tunnel
Topic: Homeland Security and Disaster Resilience
Published: 10/12/2011
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka S. Suzuki
Abstract: The present investigation was undertaken to construct a new and improved Dragon‰s LAIR facility. This entailed removing the NIST Baby Dragon from the wind tunnel facility and inserting the new and improved NIST continuous feed Baby Dragon. The uni ...

17. Modeling and Simulation of Healthcare Systems for Homeland Security Applications
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7784
Topic: Homeland Security and Disaster Resilience
Published: 9/1/2011
Authors: Charles R. McLean, Yung-Tsun Tina Lee, Sanjay Jain, Charles W. Hutchings
Abstract: The purpose of this document is to provide a foundation for establishing a modeling and simulation technical interest group whose focus is information exchange on healthcare issues. The document defines an initial set of user/customer needs and syst ...

19. Disaster Resilience: A Guide to the Literature
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1117
Topic: Homeland Security and Disaster Resilience
Published: 10/13/2010
Author: Stanley W Gilbert
Abstract: Although there is a great deal of high-quality information available on resilience-related topics hazard assessment, vulnerability assessment, risk assessment, risk management, and loss estimation as well as disaster resilience itself, there is no ce ...

20. The Need for Behavioral Theory in Evacuation Modeling
Topic: Homeland Security and Disaster Resilience
Published: 2/1/2010
Authors: Erica D Kuligowski, Steve M.V. Gwynne
Abstract: This paper posits the need for comprehensive theories about human behavior in fire evacuations. These would be of value in and of themselves to improve training, education, and future data collection efforts, but would also allow for a complete behav ...
