41. Measuring a Device's Susceptibility to LTE: Preliminary Approaches
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 3/15/2015
Authors: Jason B Coder, John M Ladbury
Abstract: Previous testing has shown that measuring a device‰s susceptibility to a radiated, broadband signal can present a different set of challenges than those faced when testing with a narrow-band signal. Decisions ranging from choosing a measurement f ...

42. Exothermic Reaction of Halogenated Hydrocarbons: WORKSHOP PROCEEDINGS
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1871
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 3/13/2015
Authors: Gregory T Linteris, Jeffrey A Manion
Abstract: A workshop was held at NIST Gaithersburg on October 27 and 28, 2014 to discuss the exothermic reaction of halogenated hydrocarbons. The industries that gathered to discuss the topic were the fire suppression, fire suppression in aircraft, and He ...

43. Layer Double Hydroxide and Sodium Montmorillonite Multilayer Coatings for the Flammability Reduction of Flexible Polyurethane Foams
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 3/9/2015
Authors: Rick D Davis, Yu-Chin Li, John R Shields
Abstract: Flexible polyurethane foam (PUF) is coated by layer-by-layer (LbL) assembly using branched polyethyleneimine (BPEI), poly(acrylic acid) (PAA), and two different charged nanoparticles, such as sodium montmorillonite (Na-MMT) and layered double hydroxi ...

44. Considerations for Design and In-Situ Calibration of High Accuracy Length Artifacts for Field Testing of Laser Trackers
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 3/1/2015
Authors: Aaron Hudlemeyer, Daniel S Sawyer, Christopher J Blackburn, Vincent D Lee, Mark Meuret, Craig M Shakarji
Abstract: Interim testing of laser trackers can be problematic due to the lack of high precision, long length artifacts that maintain their calibrated lengths during measurement. Gravitational loading, fixturing forces, and changes in the atmospheric conditio ...

45. Summary Article: IEA HPP Annex 36, Quality Installation/Quality Maintanace Sensitivity Studies
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/25/2015
Authors: Glenn Hourahan, Piotr A Domanski, Van Baxter
Abstract: It is widely recognized that residential and commercial heat pump equipment experience significant ,in-fieldŠ performance loss (i.e., capacity and efficiency) depending on how the components are sized, matched, installed, and subsequently field-m ...

47. A Review of Test Methods for Determining Protective Capabilities of Fire Fighter Protective Clothing from Steam
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1861
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/5/2015
Authors: Shonali Nazare, Daniel Madrzykowski
Abstract: Primary focus of this paper is to review existing test methods that quantify steam burn injuries and to compare bench-scale test methods that use pre-wetted samples as opposed to external steam exposures to evaluate heat and moisture transfer i ...

48. EFFECT OF SIDING TREATMENT ON FIREBRAND PRODUCTION FROM BUILDING COMPONENTS
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/2/2015
Authors: Samuel L Manzello, Sayaka Suzuki
Abstract: Wildfires which spread into a community, commonly known as Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) fires, is a significant problem all over the world. Post-fire investigations have suggested that firebrands are the major cause of structure ignitions. Yet, ...

49. 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 ...

50. 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 ...
