52. Modeling of moment connections for structural fire analyses
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 3/25/2014
Authors: Mina Samir Seif, Therese P McAllister, Joseph A Main, William E Luecke
Abstract: Performance-based methodologies to evaluate the fire performance of structures are needed to move beyond the prescriptive procedures presently in use, which cannot be used to determine actual structural performance in fire. Analytical methods are nee ...

53. High Pressure Release and Dispersion of Hydrogen in a Partially Enclosed Compartment : Effect of Natural and Forced Ventilation
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 3/14/2014
Author: Kuldeep R Prasad
Abstract: The study of compressed hydrogen releases 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, connecting piping, or due to ...

55. Stair Evacuation of People with Mobility Impairments
Topic: Building and Fire Research
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 ...

56. Fire Characteristics of Steel Members Coated with Nano-Enhanced Polymers
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 3/1/2014
Authors: Kathryn M Butler, Alexander H.-D. Cheng, Christopher Mullen, Ahmed Al-Ostaz
Abstract: Applying a polymeric coating on steel members has been demonstrated to be an effective countermeasure for the threat of blast on building and other structures. The development of a blast-resistant coating for steel with good characteristics in a fire ...

57. Ultrafine particle removal and ozone generation by in-duct electrostatic precipitators
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/27/2014
Authors: Dustin G Poppendieck, Dong H. Rim, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: In-duct electrostatic air filters (ESP) have been shown to be an effective particulate control device for reducing UFP concentrations (20 nm - 100 nm) in buildings, although they have the potential to increase indoor ozone concentrations due to coron ...

59. A Graphical Approach to Evaluating High-Performing Buildings:Indoor Air Quality, Energy, Water, and Waste
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/20/2014
Authors: Kevin Yale Teichman, Steven J Emmerich, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: In this paper, we describe and demonstrate a graphical approach to illustrating the performance of high-performing buildings. Our approach enables building designers, owners, operators, and occupants to evaluate the performance of a building as desig ...

60. An analysis of evacuation travel paths on stair landings by means of conditional probabilities
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/20/2014
Authors: Enrico Ronchi, Paul A Reneke, Erica D Kuligowski, Richard D Peacock
Abstract: This paper provides the analysis of a data-set about people movement on stair landings collected during an evacuation drill performed in a six-storey office building in the United States. The evacuation drill was filmed and occupant‰s behaviours on ...
