11. Experimental and Numerical Simulations of the Gas-Phase Effectiveness of Phosphorus Compounds
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/2/2015
Authors: Nicolas Bouvet, Gregory T Linteris, Valeri Ivan Babushok, Fumiaki Takahashi, Viswanath R Katta
Abstract: The effectiveness of phosphorus-containing compounds as gas-phase combustion inhibitors varies widely with flame type. To understand this behavior, experiments are performed with dimethyl methylphosphonate (DMMP) added to the oxidizer stream of m ...

12. SIMULATIONS OF GAS-PHASE INTERACTIONS OF PHOSPHORUS FLAME RETARDANTS WITH DIFFUSION FLAME STRUCTURE
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/2/2015
Authors: Gregory T Linteris, Fumiaki Takahashi, Viswanath R Katta, Valeri Ivan Babushok
Abstract: The interaction of the gas-phase mechanisms of phosphorus flame retardants with the co-flow diffusion flame structure has been investigated computationally to complement the experimental research at NIST. Time-dependent axisymmetric computation was ...

13. Evaluating Smoldering Behavior of Fire-Blocking Barrier Fabrics
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 1/29/2015
Authors: Shonali Nazare, William M Pitts, Szabolcs Matko, Rick D Davis
Abstract: This study reports on the smoldering propensity of commercially available barrier fabrics (BFs) in a small-scale upholstered seating mock-up configuration. Most commercially available BFs are smolder resistant when tested alone over a standard flexi ...

14. Evaluating smoldering behavior of fire-blocking barrier fabrics
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1859
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 1/29/2015
Authors: Shonali Nazare, William M Pitts, Szabolcs Matko, Rick D Davis
Abstract: This study reports on the smoldering propensity of commercially available barrier fabrics (BFs) in a small-scale mock-up configuration. Most BFs are smolder resistant when tested alone over a standard flexible polyurethane foam (FPUF). However, w ...

15. HVACR Editorial for IAQ 2013 Special Issue
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 1/23/2015
Authors: Hal Levin, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: The papers in this issue were selected from presentations made at the ASHRAE IAQ 2013: Environmental Health in Low Energy Buildings conference held in Vancouver Canada in October 2013. The conference was held specifically to review the state of knowl ...

16. High Resolution Imagery Collection for Post-Disaster Studies Utilizing Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS)
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 11/19/2014
Authors: Stuart M Adams, Marc L Levitan, Friedland J Carol
Abstract: This paper examines the use of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) to capture imagery for use in post-disaster field studies at the neighborhood and individual building level. Applications of UASs in recent disasters as described in the literature are r ...

17. Hydrocarbon Flame Inhibition by C3H2F3Br (2-BTP)
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 11/14/2014
Authors: Valeri Ivan Babushok, Gregory T Linteris, Donald R Burgess Jr., Patrick T. Baker
Abstract: The kinetic mechanism of hydrocarbon flame inhibition by the potential halon replacement 2-BTP has been assembled, and is used to study its effects on premixed methane-air flames. Simulations with varying CH4-air stoichiometry and agent loading ha ...

18. Study of the Impact of Operation Distance of Outdoor Portable Generators under Different Weather Conditions
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 11/13/2014
Authors: Leon Wang, Steven J Emmerich, Cheng-Chun Lin
Abstract: The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has reported that up to half of non-fatal monoxide (CO) poisoning incidents during the hurricane seasons in 2004 and 2005 involved generators operated outdoors but within seven feet of the hom ...

19. A Method of Determining Sphere Center to Center Distance Using Laser Trackers For Evaluating Laser Scanners.
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 11/11/2014
Authors: Prem Kumar Rachakonda, Balasubramanian Muralikrishnan, Vincent D Lee, Daniel S Sawyer, Steven David Phillips, John Palmateer
Abstract: The Dimensional Metrology Group (DMG) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is involved in the development of documentary standards for volumetric performance evaluation of laser scanners. Typical evaluation of these scanne ...

20. Mechanisms of aging and release from weathered nanocomposites
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 10/31/2014
Authors: Tinh Nguyen, Wendel Wohlleben, Li Piin Sung
Abstract: Polymer nanocomposites are increasingly used in outdoor structures. However, polymers are susceptible to degradation by solar ultraviolet (UV) radiation, which potentially releases nanofiller during polymer nanocomposites‰ life cycle. Such release ma ...
