51. Wildland-Urban Interface Fire Research Needs- Summary Report
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1150
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/14/2013
Authors: Nelson P Bryner, Erik L Johnsson
Abstract: In response to the increasing losses due to WUI fires and to ensure that measurement science keeps pace with needed improvements in materials, fire-resistant design, mitigation response, and building and fire codes, NIST sponsored the Workshop ...

52. Development of Standard Reference Materials for Cement-Based Materials
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/13/2013
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, Nicos Martys, William L George
Abstract: Rheometers are used to determine the rheological properties of materials ranging from mayonnaise to concrete. While rotational rheometers are routinely used for homogeneous materials such as mayonnaise, their usage for characterization of a granular ...

53. A stiff variable time step transport solver for CONTAM
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/10/2013
Authors: David M Lorenzetti, William S Dols, Andrew Keith Persily, Michael D Sohn
Abstract: CONTAM, a multizone model for predicting whole-building airflow and contaminant transport, has been updated to improve the speed and accuracy of its transport calculations. CVODE, a general-purpose code for solving ordinary differential equatio ...

54. Cross-sectional stability of wide flange structural steel columns at elevated temperatures
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/1/2013
Authors: Mina Samir Seif, Therese P McAllister
Abstract: There is a lack of understanding of how structural systems perform under realistic, uncontrolled fires. Fire protection of steel structures is usually provided through prescriptive requirements. The development of performance-based standards and ...

55. NIST Handbook 150-11, NVLAP Electromagnetic Compatibility and Telecommunications
Series: Handbook (NIST HB)
Report Number: 150-11
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 4/25/2013
Authors: Bethany E Hackett, Bradley W Moore, Dennis G Camell
Abstract: NIST Handbook 150-11, NVLAP Electromagnetic Compatibility and Telecommunications, presents the technical requirements and guidance for the accreditation of laboratories under the NVLAP Electromagnetic Compatibility and Telecommunications (ECT) LAP. I ...

56. Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Dispersion 1. Optimum placement of gas inlets on a building rooftop for the measurement of greenhouse gas concentrations
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1158
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 4/22/2013
Authors: Kuldeep R Prasad, Anthony Bova, James R Whetstone, Elena Novakovskaia
Abstract: Inverse atmospheric dispersion models are used to provide measurement-based, or ,topdownŠ, estimates of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for comparison with input-based, or ,bottom-upŠ, estimates. To minimize uncertainty, inverse estimates require ac ...

57. Estimating Uncertainties in Antenna Measurements
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 4/8/2013
Author: Michael H Francis
Abstract: We describe general methods of estimating uncertainties in antenna measurements. These include estimates based on theory (analysis1), simulation, and altering the measurement system (self-coparison tests). The important component sources of uncertain ...

58. Evaluation of a Robotically Controlled Millimeter-Wave Near-Field Pattern Range at NIST Determining mechaincal suitability for antenna measurements
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 4/8/2013
Authors: David R Novotny, Joshua A Gordon, Jason B Coder, Michael H Francis, Jeffrey R Guerrieri
Abstract: The Antenna Metrology Laboratory at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, USA (NIST) is developing a robotically controlled near-field pattern range for measuring antennas and components from 50 GHz to 500 GHz. This new range is intende ...

59. Identifying improved standardized tests for measuring cement particle size and surface area
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 4/1/2013
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, Edward Joseph Garboczi
Abstract: The Blaine fineness (Blaine) of a cement powder is a single parameter that is meant to characterize the specific surface area of a cement, and is assumed to be linked to physical and mechanical properties such as strength, setting time, and rheology. ...

60. Simulating the Behavior of Restrained Steel Beams to Flame Impingement From Localized Fires
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 4/1/2013
Authors: Chao Zhang, Guo-Qiang Li, Usmani Asif
Abstract: Steel structures may be exposed to localized heating by ignition of the fire source nearby. Flame impingement from localized fire may lead to high temperatures in the exposed steel members, which may lead to structural collapse. This paper numerica ...
