901. 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 ...

902. 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 ...

903. 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 ...

904. 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 ...

905. 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 ...

906. Precision Measurement Method for Cryogenic Amplifier Noise Temperatures Below 5 K
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 3/1/2006
Authors: James Paul Randa, Eyal Gerecht, Dazhen Gu, Robert L Billinger
Abstract: We report precision measurements of the effective input noise temperature of a cryogenic (liquid helium temperature) MMIC amplifier at the amplifier reference planes within the cryostat. A method is given for characterizing and removing the effect of ...

907. Using LADAR to characterize the 3-D shape of aggregates: Preliminary results
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 3/1/2006
Authors: Edward Joseph Garboczi, Geraldine S Cheok, William C Stone
Abstract: In previous publications, we have shown how using x-ray computed tomography to obtain the raw 3-D data for the coordinates of the surface, and then converting this raw data into an analytical function for the surface via an expansion in spherical har ...

908. Vortex Head-to-Head Domain Walls and Their Formation in Onion-State Stable Ring Elements
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 3/1/2006
Authors: M H Park, Y K Hong, B C Choi, S H Gee, Michael J Donahue
Abstract: Magnetization configuration of vortex head-to-head (HTH) domain walls and the wall formation process in Ni80Fe20 ring elements were investigated using magnetic force microscopy and micromagnetic simulation. At remanence, two types of vortex HTH doma ...

909. In-Flight Suppressant Deployment Temperatures
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 984-4
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/28/2006
Author: Donald Bein
Abstract: This report describes review of DoD military fixed-wing and rotary aircraft fire mishap/incident data applicable to assess temperatures at which aircraft fire suppressants have been deployed in engine nacelle and APU compartment fires. Another model ...

910. Chemorheological Studies on the Environmental Susceptibility of a Model System for Adhesives and Sealants
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/19/2006
Authors: Kar T. Tan, David J. Benatti, Christopher C White, Donald Lee Hunston
Abstract: The degradation of styrene-butadiene-styrene triblock copolymer has been characterized using DMTA, FTIR-transmission and UV-Vis spectroscopies. From FTIR analysis, it is evident that the oxidative degradation leads to the formation of hydroxyl and ca ...
