901. A Comparison of R245fa Pool Boiling Measurements to R123, and R245fa/Isopentane on a Passively Enhanced, Horizontal Surface
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 4/3/2006
Author: Mark A Kedzierski
Abstract: This study presents pool boiling heat transfer measurements for R245fa, R123 and a mixture of R245fa and isopentane on a flattened passively enhanced low-pressure boiling surface. Possibly because the enhanced surface was flattened from a round tube, ...

902. Engineered Infills for Concrete Barriers
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7311
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 4/3/2006
Authors: Kenneth Alan Snyder, C Langton, B Clark, Chiara F Ferraris, J Dawson
Abstract: Entombment may be considered as an option for decommissioning nuclear concrete structures so that licenses for facilities on which these structures reside may be terminated. Prior to entombment, the nuclear facility permanently ceases operations and ...

903. First Responder Thermal Imaging Cameras: Development of Performance Metrics and Test Methods
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 4/3/2006
Authors: Francine K. Amon, Anthony P Hamins
Abstract: Thermal imaging cameras are rapidly becoming integral equipment for first responders for use in structure fires and other emergencies. Currently there are no standardized performance metrics or test methods available to the users and manufacturers o ...

904. Component-Resolved Determination of the Magnetization by Magnetization-Induced Optical Second Harmonic Generation
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 3/31/2006
Authors: Thomas Gerrits, Thomas J Silva, Hugo AM van den Berg, Theo Rasing
Abstract: We present a method for simultaneous measuring the two normalized in-plane magnetization components in magnetic thin films that allows for the reconstruction of the magnetization angle and the normalized value of the magnetization with subnanosecond ...

905. Large-angle magnetization dynamics measured by time-resolved ferromagnetic resonance
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 3/30/2006
Authors: Thomas Gerrits, Michael Schneider, Anthony B Kos, Thomas J Silva
Abstract: A time-resolved ferromagnetic resonance technique was used to investigate the nonlinear magnetization dynamics of a 10 nm thin Permalloy^uTM^ film in response to a sequence of large-amplitude field pulses. The magnetic field pulse sequence was set at ...

906. Characterizing Gaseous Air Cleaner Performance in the Field
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 3/20/2006
Authors: Cynthia H. Reed, Steven J Emmerich, Steven J Nabinger
Abstract: As part of an ongoing effort to better understand the performance of indoor air cleaners in buildings, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has completed a series of gaseous air cleaner field tests and model simulations. This pap ...

907. Firefighter Radio Communications in Large Public Buildings: Comparing Analog and Digital Modulation
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 3/7/2006
Authors: Catherine A Remley, Marc Rutschlin, Dylan F Williams, Robert T. Johnk, Galen H Koepke, Christopher L Holloway, Mike G Worrell, Andy MacFarlane
Abstract: To assess in-building radio coverage, in 2004 the City of Phoenix Fire Department carried out extensive testing of their radio systems. They deployed firefighters in standard configurations in a variety of buildings, and rated on a scale of 1 to 5 th ...

908. A direct comparison system for measuring low frequency power (100 KHz to 18 GHz)
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 3/3/2006
Author: Ronald A Ginley
Abstract: A direct comparison power measurement system has been developed to measure power sensor effective efficiency in the 100 kHz to 18 GHz frequency range. This system is capable of measuring thermistor and thermoelectric based power sensors. Several prob ...

909. Building and Fire Research Laboratory Activities, Accomplishments and Recognitions, 2005
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 838-19
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 3/1/2006
Authors: Kellie Ann Beall, J Hill
Abstract: This is the biennial report for 2004-2005 for the Building and Fire Research Laboratory (BFRL) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), an agency of the U.S. Department of Commerce. It describes the goals, programs, recent accom ...

910. Elevator Controls
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 3/1/2006
Authors: Richard W. Bukowski, R P Fleming, Jeffrey Tubbs, Christopher Marrion, Jill Dirksen, Chris Duke, Debbie Prince, Lee F Richardson, Dave Beste, Dottie Stanlaske
Abstract: The development of firefighter elevators and special application egress elevators is reviewed. Recent activities of the elevator industry and NIST to develop standards and building code requirements for elevators for use by the fire service and by o ...
